PRE PURCHASE

METH TESTING

 Benefits of Pre-Purchase Meth Testing

Costing as little as $199+GST you have so much to gain

1: Peace of mind

Peace of mind that your prospective property hasn't been used in the consumption, distribution or manufacture of schedule A drug. Very rarely are our clients disappointed with getting a meth test pre-purchase because the real value in meth testing is the peace of mind and assurance in the safety and value of the property. Don't let meth affected houses be your burden.

2: Take control

If there is a risk to health you should know about it. We estimated, based on published police information that there is up to 45,000 houses that have been used as meth labs since 2008 and the vast majority, would not be known to police or have been meth testing. While p labs are less common than they were 5 years ago, meth usage continues to rise. While one instance of use is hardly warranted for concern, meth can build up on surfaces in houses to rival and exceed the concentrations found in meth labs.

3: Protect your interests

By conducting meth testing before you buy, you can rest assured in the safety and value of your asset. This means you won't run the risk of being affected by the stigma of meth-contaminated property which will undoubtedly mean less potential buyers, lower offers and reduced chance of sale for your property.

4: Protect your investment property

Rest easy that your future rental property will be safe and habitable for your tenants. Say no to meth use by undertaking pre & post tenancy screenings and gain access to better coverage from your insurance. There are a bunch of reasons to meth test your property and future proofing is one of them. You can find out more about the benefit of rental meth testing here.

  What is a field Composite?

A field composite is a process by which samples are collected from a maximum of 5 areas and combined onsite on a single kit. The process is repeated for all areas of the dwelling. These kits are then analyzed by an independent laboratory.

 Advantages

  • Most cost effective type of meth testing for pre-purchase and rental properties.

 Disadvantages

  • As samples were combined onsite, they cannot be analyzed individually.

  • Only provides a basic understanding of the health and financial risks of the property.

  • If more information is needed, the sampler will have to return to the property and undertake a comprehensive test.

 What is a Lab Composite?

A laboratory composite is a process by which 1 sample kit is used per area. The process is repeated for all areas of the dwelling. These kits are then sent to an independent laboratory where the samples are combined for analysis. 

 Advantages

  • Samples are taken individually and can, therefore, be analyzed on a room by room basis (expansion).

  • The expansion provides greater clarity around compliance with the NZ health standard and certainty around any cleanup or financial risks for the property.

 Disadvantages

  • Higher cost upfront when compared to basic meth testing.

  • Additional costs to expand the samples to determine room by room concentrations of meth.
