Property Check has inspected houses in Christchurch since 1996 with Darin and Cathy Devanny buying into the business in 2001.
Darin is highly qualified and experienced in building inspections, with weathertightness being his area of expertise. Darin is one of a few certified weathertightness assessors in Christchurch. He enjoys working with clients to identify potential issues and helps them move ahead with confidence.
Darin has 21 years of pre-purchase inspection experience and has worked for the government as a preferred provider for leaky building assessments.
In addition to his inspection work, Darin is also presenting training modules for the New Zealand Institute of Building Surveyors to train building inspectors. This work keeps him up to date with legislation and regulation changes and best practise within the industry.
During his time as president and an executive member of the New Zealand Institute of Building Surveyors, Darin sought to highlight issues within the industry and, in particular, the effects of poor-quality inspections. Property Check focus on providing accurate reports so that our customers can avoid the stress and huge expense associated with substandard reporting which is unfortunately very common.
