You have to ask yourself…is this my dream home, or a nightmare? Is it worth the risk of ‘not testing’? Methamphetamine manufacturers and smokers don’t have favourite places, they’ll take anywhere they can get! No community is immune to drug behaviour. When you buy a new home or a rental it is imperative to leave no stone unturned because it may be the biggest investment you have. Getting a property meth tested before you buy could save a lot of time, money and worry. This Christchurch couple unfortunately discovered this the hard way.
Once your Canterbury rental is tenanted, stay on top of things by getting a base line test and maintaining these tests after each tenant so you know clearly that your rental that you are offering is clean and inhabitable.
