Terms & ConditionsTerms and conditions applicable to inspectionreports prepared by Absolute Building InspectionsLimited (ABI)These terms and conditions apply to the inspection undertaken by ABI and the Inspection Report to whichthese terms and conditions apply. Inspections are undertaken by ABI in accordance with ResidentialProperty Inspection Standard NZS 4306:2005.Purpose of Inspection and ScopeThe inspection report prepared by ABI to which these terms and conditions apply (Inspection Report) isprepared for the client to whom the Inspection report is addressed (Client), and is based on an above groundvisual non-invasive inspection of the building or dwelling to which the Inspection Report relates (building).The Inspection Report has been prepared to provide general comments on the condition of the componentsof the building at the time of the inspection only. The Inspection Report and the inspection are subject toany express instructions received from the Client. The Inspection Report is not a specific structural survey,engineer’s report, weather tightness inspection or any form of guarantee or warranty as to the fitness of thebuilding. If the Client requires a structural survey, engineer’s report, weather tightness inspection or otherinspection from a third party specialist, ABI can assist with arranging such specialist third party inspectionupon request.As the purpose of this inspection was to assess the general condition of the building based on a limitedvisual inspection described below, the inspection may not identify all past, present or future defects.Descriptions in the Inspection Report of systems or appliances relate to the existence of such systems orappliances only and not the adequacy or life expectancy of such systems or appliances. Any area orcomponent of the building or any item or system not specifically identified in this report as having beeninspected was not included in the scope of the inspection.The Client accepts that ABI will not detect some faults because the fault only occurs intermittently; part ofthe building has not been used for a while and the fault usually occurs after regular use (or detection of thefault would only occur after regular use); the type of weather that would normally reveal the fault is notprevailing at, or around, the time of the inspection; the fault has been deliberately concealed; furnishing areobscuring the fault (see below); ABI has been given incorrect information by the Client, the vendor (if any),the real estate consultant, or another person; and/or the fault is/was not apparent on a visual inspection.Visual InspectionWhile all care and effort is taken to discover and record irregularities and defects in the building at the timeofAbsolutethe inspection,visualinspection only. DueBuilding InspectionInspections Reports are based on aPage34above-ground non-invasiveabsolutebuildinginspections.co.nz!

to the size, complexity and hidden nature of construction, irregularities and defects may not always byvisible at the time of the inspection. ABI accepts no responsibility or liability for an omission in theinspection or the Inspection Report related to defects or irregularities which are not reasonably visible at thetime of the inspection or which relate to components of the building which are below ground. The Clientaccepts that the visual inspection is limited to those areas of the building which are reasonably and safelyaccessible at the time of the inspection. ABI has not opened up, uncovered or dismantled any part of thebuilding part of the inspection or undertaken any internal inspection of the building. The inspection did notinclude any areas or components which were concealed or closed in behind finished surfaces (such asplumbing, drainage, heating, framing, ventilation, insulation or wiring) or which required the moving ofanything which impeded access or limited visibility (such as floor covering, furniture, appliances, personalproperty, vehicles, vegetation, debris or soil). ABI did not move occupier-owned items for the purpose ofundertaking the inspection. ABI is not responsible for inspecting, and the inspection will not cover, any partof the building or property to which access is not reasonably and safely available to carry out a visualinspection. This may include roofs, subfloor areas and ceiling cavities. High, constricted or dangerous areascannot be inspected if in conflict with Occupational Safety and Health Regulations.Product names, materials and systems are generalized to help in reading and understanding the inspectionReport. All materials and systems are assumed to be standard typical construction or materials wh
