Healthy Homes Assessment

The healthy homes standards introduce specific and minimum standards for heating, insulation, ventilation, moisture ingress and drainage, and draught stopping in rental properties.

We provide a full assessment of your property against the five standards (insulation, heating, ventilation, moisture ingress and drainage and draught stopping), and report on what you may need to do to meet these requirements. This may include installation of heating, extraction vents, insulation or maintenance of gutters and drainage systems etc.

Our reports give buyers/landlords peace of mind that they’re meeting their obligations and renters confidence that the home meets Healthy Homes Standards.

Indicative pricing:

From $250 + gst

Asbestos Tests

Many legacy building materials contain asbestos, 

which can be difficult to identify via visual inspection only.

When an asbestos sample report is required, we carry out an initial site inspection and follow strict safety procedures using personal safety equipment to discreetly remove small samples which are then sent to the lab for testing. Test results are sent the client as promptly as possible.

 

**Important: Do not attempt to remove any materials that may contain asbestos yourself. Engage a professional if you have any concerns your property may contain asbestos.

Indicative pricing:

from $250 + gst

Tax Depreciation Schedule Reports

This report includes a full assessment and recording of the property, including all fixtures and fittings. Your quantity surveyor can then write this into your tax depreciation schedule, so that, on advice of your accountant, you can depreciate your investment property like any other asset.
