    "Great service from Inquest. I needed a property inspection urgently. Jodi was very efficient at listening to me and reassuring that Inquest could help. Adam was able to do it the following day with the report arriving that evening. It was detailed and comprehensive and I was able to speak to him about it the next morning for clarification and recommendations for follow up maintenance. Highly recommend."

    "I engaged Adam from Inquest to help me find some solutions to why water was getting into our rental. He came and was so thorough and detailed and stepped me through the solutions and in what order to undertake them. They also turned around an asbestos test in record time without any fuss.
    The best part is as he doesn't do the work he is inspecting so you know that you are getting independent advice.
    He was onto the job the day after contacting inquest and called me with very detailed instructions that evening.

    He even offered to pop back and check once we have dug out where some of the drainage is to go,

    I wish I had known about inquest years ago as would have saved me thousands on undertaking jobs on my rentals that possibly didn't need doing.

    I thoroughly recommend these guys. Probably the best company to do with housing I have ever dealt with.It was totally money well spent.

    Their charging is transparent and easy to understand and I knew exactly what I was getting for my dollars.

    Excellent office support as well and very detailed email communication.

    One of the best.

    "Adam and Jodi responded very quickly and efficiently to an urgent request for a pre-purchase property inspection.
    I attended the inspection with Adam and we spent 2 hours going around the property very thoroughly. He explained everything to me and answered my many questions helpfully and patiently.
    The report was very well presented and zeroed in on key issues.
    Very highly recommended, will use again.

    "Adam carried out a home inspection prior to my home going on the market. This resulted in a very comprehensive document of a great number of my house details all with clear photos. The document proved to be an asset for potential buyers . It is well presented, offering further explanation and advice from Adam by phone contact. At all times I was kept informed about the process. I would highly recommend Inquest whether buying or selling property."

    "Adam and Jodi were helpful and quick to respond in a rushed turnaround to satisfy our apartment purchase conditions. They're not the cheapest service out there but we chose to invest in professionals and it was totally worth it for the peace of mind. Adam's observations and recommendations were straightforward and realistic, and he took the time to make sure we understood all the issues and possible solutions so we could make an informed choice about whether to buy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend InQuest to others who need a home inspected - they were thorough, friendly, and answered all our questions with clear expertise."

They were quick to respond, and exceeded my expectations in how fast they did the inspection and how good the report was. Even after they did the report, they made sure they followed up and checked i had all the information i needed. Great teamwork from them."

    The building report we received was thorough and concise.
    Getting in contact with us post inspection to go through the underlying issues with quotes on how to remedy these was greatly appreciated.
    Their company is top notch and I highly recommend their services to anyone looking at purchasing a home.

    "We used InQuest for a pre-purchase building report for our first home. The inspection was done very quickly (within 2 days of our enquiry) and thoroughly. It uncovered quite a few issues that weren't in the vendor's own builder's report. Adam also jumped on a few calls with us and explained some of the issues in great detail, which gave us the confidence about our decision to purchase the property. The online report we got from InQuest was very detailed and laid out in a very clear and concise manner. Throughout the process, InQuest communicated very well and quickly (even during the weekend when our offer was accepted). I would highly recommend getting your own builder's report from InQuest, even if the vendor had provided their own. In our case, it was definitely worth it for the value that it had provided us."

    "Adam provided us with a full builder report prior to buying our first home. For rookies like us it was hugely beneficial to have someone with Adam's knowledge and experience to have a good look at our future home. He provided us with a written builders report with specific details on what we needed to do and was more than happy to answer questions. The report is also clear to read and understand and the whole process was so smooth. Jodi is lovely to deal with and couldn't recommend Adam and Jodi enough if you're considering using them for a builders report on your future home. Thanks again guys!"

    "I had a very tight deadline to get a builders report done before going unconditional on a house. Not only did Adam contact me quickly but also explained a process that was very new to me in a way I could actually understand.
    He was very thorough in his inspection and gave me piece of mind when purchasing the property as we understood it needs a little TLC.

    He even managed to give us a rough estimate on the total cost of revamping the house in its entirety which is a really good indicator of work to come.

    I feel that even though there were some serious issues with the property that we are fully prepared when we move in.

    Thanks again Adam

    "We obtained the services Adam of Inquest Ltd when purchasing our first home, which in itself can be a daunting task let alone understanding a building inspection report. The inspection was carried out and Adam completed an extremely thorough inspection of the property and went above and beyond to make sure we understood clearly the ins and outs of the final report. We can not reccomend Adam and Inquest Ltd enough. They kept in touch throughout the process, were incredibly helpful with all our questions and followed up with us to see how we got on with the purchase. Just one those true genuine kiwi businesses that you want to support. Will definitely be using them again in the future."

    "Jodi organised everything fantastically and Adam carried out the job as requested, with a smile, efficiently and professionally. He didn't hold back on his expertise and suggestions which was simply a huge bonus so we could understand the problems and some of how they could be fixed. Communications were fantastic and they were ready and willing to do our job even though it wasn't quite exactly what the do; we needed an inspection of all the roof timber after we noted a big sag over a window and cracks after the earthquakes in the timber up in the roof space."

    "Adam looked at a house that we’re planning to buy. Initially I thought it was just a tick in the box inspection. Turned out we got valuable information of the house condition that made us reconsider the price. From his report and conversation with him (very clear and down to earth even to myself who’s layman on this area) - we realize the condition of the house and the right pricing we should bid for."

Communication was crisp, clear and friendly. The report was very thorough and easy to follow through all platforms; Mobile, online and printed but Adam offered to read us through it too which helped.
