Don’t make the mistake of discovering your house is unhealthy after you have moved in. If you are looking to buy a home it is important to make sure the built environment your family is about to spend most of their time in is safe and is not going to affect their health.
The same applies to renting. Even if it is only short term a healthy home is essential to your wellbeing.
If you are looking to sell your house a pre-purchase audit can add value to your property and gives you the advantage of setting yourself apart from other sellers.
