Do not buy a meth problem
Have any prospective property purchase screened for Methamphetamine before you buy. Put a Methamphetamine test into your due diligence list.
Methamphetamine contamination has been found in all types of property
- Multi Million dollar homes
- Rental properties
- Commercial Property
- Cars, caravans, motor homes and boats
Avoid renovating twice
Are you looking to "flip" or develop a property? Imagine spending thousands on the renovation, then when you come to sell the prospective buyers order a Meth screen which may come back positive! You would be responsible for remediation of the property after the decontamination.
Methamphetamine is in every corner of New Zealand
New Zealand is rated as being one of the highest users of Methamphetamine in the world
According to experts in the field it is theoretically possible to leave enough residue from one smoking session to contaminate the walls in a small room above the level (0.5 micrograms/100cm 2). If someone cooks meth in your home you may, or may not, have some form of pollution from a variety of chemicals. If someone smokes meth in your home, or car, you have meth contamination at levels that may affect your health. It may also affect the value of your home and/or your ability to sell it.
