We believe that YOU have the right to choose what you want looked at during YOUR property inspection, and to only pay for areas actually covered.

You are unique and have unique needs, and the property is also unique. And property inspections need to take this into account.


Some properties have lots of surrounding land and paths and patios and decks ... and some don't; some have underfloor areas and 2 metre high foundations ... and some don't; and some properties have ceiling crawl spaces or high pitched roofs that need looking at ... and some don't.

So, when we carry out your property inspection, we only look at and charge for the areas that exist, and the ones that are important to you. We do not adopt a "one-fee-for-everything" mentality.


NOTE: All our property inspections are now carried out by our sister company More Choice Home Inspections (Wellington) Limited, however pending the creation of a new website, all the information below is relevant and correct
