If you are nervous about Christchurch property, then that is a positive start. You know you need a building inspection, but what type?
We have seen a significant uplift from clients needing to verify the repairs on Christchurch property. Repairs that they previously trusted were satisfactory as the information was supplied from the vendors. The paperwork on face value looks ok – but we know where to look.
A Risknet Database search and Inspection should be mandatory.
Other services we provide and recommend include;
- Foor level surveys
- Building inspection and survey
- Specialist property guidance
Risknet is a specialist property Due Diligence company in the post-quake property market.
The statement “EQC repairs complete” has been proven on numerous occasions to be factually incorrect. A high number of houses for sale as ‘fully repaired’ are not. We have verifiable proof to support this statement.
Were the repairs completed? Will the property stand up to future insurance scrutiny? Any repairs not completed to a high standard will place the insurance cover on the entire property at risk.
Insurance and Finance Risk:
Insurers: Can you afford to have your insurance policy canceled due to previous damage not being repaired properly.
Banks: What do you think your bank’s position will be if the insurer reduces or voids your policy in the future. You would be correct to assume that the bank may demand your loan is repaid in part or full, immediately.
Thinking of bidding at Auction? We say DON’T without considering the below first!
Once you bid and win at auction, you are fully committed to completing the purchase. For new builds, no problem, for all other homes, you may unintentionally buy a future problem.
If problems discovered, you may be up for significant costs and face a devaluation on your property.
Understanding the risks and communicating these to you is Our job. Taking appropriate action is Your job.
