What does a PropertySafe audit and inspection cover?

PropertySafe reports detect risks and help to provide the end-to-end services that remove them. This ensures your property, whether owned or managed, is safe for your loved ones and tenants.

PropertySafe residential safety inspection is not a pre-purchase, compliance or building certification report. The report is first and foremost about alerting home owners to safety risks and providing options to mitigate those risks.

The number of incidents that occur in and around the home is significant. Recently, these figures have increased. As can be seen in the table below, the incidents include children falling from windows, fire deaths and injuries, poorly maintained balconies or balustrades, and pool deaths. A vast majority of these injuries and deaths could have been prevented.

PropertySafe provides homeowners and investors with significant risk management protection for their homes. There are 4 types of reports for the homeowner/occupier, and an investor-focussed report for properties rented to tenants.

The reports all:

  • Identify potential risks within a property
  • Provide recommended actions and quotes
  • Use experienced and insured inspectors
  • Deliver crucial protection to homeowners, landlords, and Property Managers
  • Provide a safer environment for family members and tenants
  • Address all legally required compliance inspections
  • Provide a complete system of quoting, notifications, and reminders.

    Each report identifies all recommended actions that should be undertaken to ensure a property is safe for the occupants. It includes specific property details, an executive summary with photos, and action lists.
