Coutts & Co Limited recommend their clients to make educated decisions on Meth Testing and believe that testing in between tenancies to detect use is something to be considered. We encourage our clients to read their Insurance Policies relating to Meth Contamination.
The manufacture and use of Methamphetamine, also known as P, has become a serious problem in New Zealand. Contamination of a property can happen within hours and will remain for many years, or until the property is cleaned by specialists.
Unfortunately, most people don’t find out they have purchased or rented a Meth affected property until neighbours tell them about unusual activity, or when somebody in the property starts to become sick, or a positive result upon selling the property when a Meth Clause is a condition within the Sale & Purchase agreement.
A Meth Test will firstly ascertain if Methamphetamine substances have been used in a property, and secondly if it is a positive result, will give the levels of substances found in the property.
Our Property Management Division conducts tenant vetting on all prospective tenants to reduce risk exposure and our Property Managers are aware of the signs and indications of the possibility of Meth use. However, people involved with meth are incredibly devious. Within the industry we cannot stop people making poor lifestyle choices and from time to time we do see good tenant turn ‘bad’.
"With the ever growing issues surrounding "P"/ Methamphetamine contamination, Meth Testing New Zealand was established in 2015 to counter the growing issues effecting New Zealand properties. Meth Testing New Zealand offers a cost effective sampling service that is reliable and offers results quickly."
