"Jeff Twigge is, in my experience, the best property inspector in the region. We've used his Silver reports in a number of occasions much to the regret of REA's and vendors. We always demand the naked truth to make the best informed decision when it comes to the structural and legal condition of a property we're interested in, not a superficial, cheap and cheerful report. Jeff and his team leave no stone unturned and no council record/permit/blueprint unchecked. Their reports are clear, complete, and - above all - thorough." Virginia. W. 

"The NZ House Survey's Silver Reports have saved us from buying a number of wrecks with cowboy or illegal renovations. In my opinion Jeff is without a doubt the best building inspector in the region. He knows his trade and the people around it (very important). He leaves no stone unturned, no council record unchecked, no invisible moisture ingress unnoticed, and no detail unrecorded. Mention his name to any REA in town and notice how they suddenly begin to disclose information they somehow failed to mention to you prior to the inspection. He's also very generous with his time. The NZ House Surveys team are friendly, professional, and very easy to deal with." Virginia. W. 

"Jeff and his team provide a lot of help to us. They are very professional and generous." Grace. G. 

"First class service from start to finish. As a first home owner I had lots of questions and Geoff and the team were incredibly helpful. I would 100% recommend this service. Thanks NZ House Survey s team" Katy. B.

"Jeff recently helped us buy our first home. He gave us plenty of advice over the phone before we even paid for his service. When we finally found our house we paid for a silver report which was just right for us. The report was logical and thorough, without being over the top. It clearly showed which alterations were certified and those that did not require it. Very good for a first home buyer with little knowledge about compliance etc." Hamish. P. 

"We recently purchased an older home. We knew there would be issues with the house but were not sure what they would be (being first time home buyers). Jeff's Gold level report was brilliant for us! It outlined all the issues (big and small) and gave us information about how much it will cost to fix the issues. After completing the report, Jeff met us at the property and talked us through everything. I would recommend Jeff and his team to any first time home buyer or someone buying an older home. They were fast, efficient, and very helpful!" T. Mcglauhlin  

"We recently got a building inspection and meth test undertaken by Jeff. The level of service we received was outstanding. The report was extremely thorough and allowed us (as lay people) to understand the ins and outs of the property we had made an offer on. One of the benefits of Jeff's service is that he compares what is on site to the Council's records which highlights whether there are any consenting/compliance issues. This was hugely beneficial and something we found wasn't offered with many other companies. The turn around time for the report was also very fast - 3 working days from when we requested the inspection. We would not hesitate to recommend this company to our friends and we will definitely be using this service again." H.J. Thompson 

"Hi Jeff and Diana, I would just like to thank you for your excellent service, I was very impressed with how thorough and professional your report was. This enabled me to bargain a reduced purchase price and gather a greater understanding of the property. I’m now very close from going unconditional, and you’ve certainly helped make this an easier process for me as a first home buyer. In particular your guidance with properties such as Havill and Tremaine was very much appreciated. I will most definitely be recommending your services to future home buyers. Thanks again and all the best. Ryan Hellier"

"Being from out of the area I found myself in a bit of a lottery situation as to which company I was going to use for a house inspection relating to a home purchase. I didn't know anybody in the area for a recommendation so I had to take a punt on using NZ House Survey services after receiving a sample report. I struck gold with this company - they were very professional to deal with, communicated exactly what was to be done as part of service offering including setting my expectations, delivered on time with all service commitments fulfilled, were very reasonably priced for the level of service given and were again very helpful to explain and work through report outcomes after this was received. NZ House Surveys were also able to work the local council nuances to the benefit of myself as the customer. I was extremely happy with the service I received from the team including Jeff Twigge and I'd vouch for their services without hesitation." C. Brickell

"Back in November 2013 NZ House Surveys undertook a pre-purchase inspection on a town house that we were interested in buying.We were very impressed with the service we received from the company and found the inspection to be very comprehensive. As a result we purchased the property safe in the knowledge that there were no major problems and that the property was sound.This is the second time we have used NZ House Surveys and we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone purchasing a property."

"I engaged with NZHouseSurveys for the sale of my property in 2013. I aimed to sell my home privately, with high confidence, at a fair price and within a reasonable time frame.I decided to obtain a builder's report for the marketing period of my home. This way I could rectify any issues prior to the sale and and I could advertise, promote and sell my home with high confidence. NZ House Surveys were recommended as a reputable company in Palmerston North. They are highly regarded in the local Real Estate industry by vendors and purchasers alike, for their professional, thorough and friendly inspections. The report was extensive and easy to follow. I achieved my goal of a private sale at a fair price in a very quick time. I would like to thank NZHouseSurveys, who have played a role in this achievement." Petra

"My thanks to you, Jeff and Mark for the work done during my recent property buying spree in Palmerston North. The pre-purchase inspection reporting and third party consenting work done for the first property was comprehensive and professionally done - Thank you! Additionally, the work done by Jeff on three other properties, went a long way to ensuring that I could negotiate from a position of knowledge and hence strength on the second property that I did end up buying. Similarly, the reports guided me on which of the others to walk away from. Money well spent and ultimately recovered through avoiding costly mistakes." Jason

"We had our townhouse inspected by Jeff and Rebecca of NZ House Surveys in early January 2014 and we are proud to say that we were provided with outstanding service. Jeff and Rebecca were extremely reliable, courteous and friendly too. We would not hesitate to use their expertise at a later date. A truly first-class service." Karen & Gary
