If you’re building a home in Christchurch New Zealand and thinking about having building inspections in Manukau, there are several companies in Christchurch that will come and inspect your building for a very minimal fee. Don’t think that because a building inspection isn’t standard practice for your building that there’s not a problem with the company. It’s just a question of making sure that they actually do an inspection and get it right. If you don’t have anyone to look over your building for you then you need to make sure that you ask your local building inspector to inspect your building at least once a year. Your local building inspector should be able to give you the name of at least one other company that they recommend you go to for your building inspection.
