"Thorough, professional and informative. I did a lot of research before approaching Micheal for a full building inspection and was not dissapointed, he certainly lives up to his reviews and word of mouth referrals. Micheal was polite and communicative, offered a selection of very reasonable quotes and made time to discuss my concerns prior to beginning the inspection. Not only did he quickly identify potential issues, but was able to point us in the next direction to address them should we choose to. Highly recommend." Sarah Richardson

Friendly and efficient, with a very detailed quote followed by a thorough but easy to understand building report, complete with captioned photos. Michael was happy to answer all my questions, and the report was in my inbox exactly when he said it would be. Communication via phone, txt, and email was excellent. He made our experience as first home buyers a lot less stressful and confusing!" Alex, Christchurch

"Had a great experience with NZ House Surveys. They communicated well throughout, went above and beyond (really impressed with some of the things they picked up, such as how dust caused by an imminent property development down the road might affect the build-up of silt in a particular drain on the property...!), and answered further questions we had over the phone days after the inspection. Michael is also really genuine, and a good guy. Cheers." Kyle Wilson, Christchurch
