Purchasing a property
Purchasing a property is often our largest financial decision. Sadly many purchasers fail to check for the presence of methamphetamine prior to going unconditional. This can lead to a huge amount of stress, confusion and cost involved with decontamination, often all undertaken without insurance cover.
We have provided sampling services for thousands of clients looking to purchase real estate throughout New Zealand and recommend a test is completed as a precaution during your due diligence.
Providing a property as rental accommodation holds many legal requirements for landlords, property managers and tenants. Meth testing before and after each tenancy is becoming part of best practice as it provides proof a property is habitable prior to the commence of a tenancy. It also aids in assigning liability against a tenant should contamination be found during or at the end of a tenancy.
We have also seen an increase in tenants requesting meth tests. If no pre-tenancy test was completed and meth is found this often results in a claim against the landlord or property manager.
If you have a property or other asset that has tested positive for methamphetamine the next step is a Detailed Assessment. This is a requirement within the NZS8510:2017 Testing Standard and outlines a process to sample and clean a property to bring it back to a habitable state.
Since methamphetamine can easily be transported in vehicles or carried on a person, sampling of vehicles has become an increasing request.
