COMPREHENSIVE RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL INSPECTION©
We inspect residential as well as commercial properties, examining their structures, systems and components with a view to uncover all patent and latent defects which potential buyers and/or sellers need to be aware of in order to make informed decisions about their interest in the property.
Contrary to popular opinion, we don’t just look for problems or defects; we also show what is in good condition so that the client can make an informed decision based on unbiased information.
Our inspections are fully comprehensive and include everything, from the entrance gate to the geyser, windows, doors, floors, plumbing, roof, exterior and everything else you can think of.
Our reports are simple to interpret and easy to understand, giving you all the information you need to make an informed decision about what could be your single most valuable investment of your life.©
Pre-And Post Rental Inspection©
A detailed pre- and post inspection report that is accompanied by photographs, which seeks to outline the property’s condition before the tenant takes occupation & after the tenant vacates.
The inspections will always be in writing, signed by the parties and should be attached to the lease as an addendum.
Pre: The condition of the property & any pre-existing defects are meticulously recorded to determine the landlord’s responsibility in resolving the defects that affect the beneficial occupation of the tenant before occupation takes place.
Post: On expiration of the lease, an inspection is done to determine if any damage was caused by the tenant to the property during the lease period.
A tip is that the exit inspection is done on the same document as the entry inspection for ease of comparison.©

Q: What is the new Act (Property Practioners Act 22 of 2019) all about?
A: In a nutshell, the new Act was assented to and signed by the President on the 19 th September 2019. It was published in the Government Gazette No. 42746 on 3 October 2019. It provides for the regulation of property practitioners and provides for the continuation of the Estate Agency Affairs Board as the Property Practitioners
Regulatory Authority. It also provides for Consumer Protection, and for the repeal of the Estate Agency Affairs Act of 1976.
Q: Why can’t the seller/lessor just issue his/her own mandatory disclosure?
A: They can, BUT… it must remembered that under the new Act, it is not the seller/lessor that will be held liable by an affected buyer/lessee, but he property practitioner may be held liable for any undisclosed defects that may be discovered within the first 12 months of the conclusion of the property transaction. You need to protect yourself by insisting that a professional property inspection is done by a certified professional home inspector, prior to accepting any mandate.
Q:How would I know that a property inspector is a Certified Professional Property Inspector?
A: All professional home inspectors need to be InterNACHI certified. The only way to confirm this is to ask the inspector for his/her InterNACHI membership number.

This will bring up a list of Certified Home Inspectors near you. The name of your inspector should also appear. Click next to his name. This will bring up a confirmation page with his name and official CPI seal, stating that he is a Certified Professional Inspector, with his contact details and InterNACHI ID.

A: InterNACHI is the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors and recognized as the world leading authority operating in 38 different countries worldwide.
what our clients have to say
We went looking at a property that we were interested in buying. Chris from NPI did an inspection for us, and immediately informed us that the roof had significant damage. When we asked the agent about it, she admitted and said that the current owners would look into it! that roof would have definitely been a hidden cost for us in that sale! So grateful we were protected by a reliable unbiased inspection!

Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter, such as fallen leaves and dead trees.
Inspectors should be prepared to protect themselves and their clients from the unique challenges posed by flood-damaged buildings.
