We strongly recommend testing your Wanaka rental property for meth at the start of each new tenancy. Having a baseline test provides you with peace of mind and if it was later discovered that meth contamination has taken place, it makes lodging an insurance claim easier.
Making it known to tenants that you have had a property tested not only provides them with the assurance that they are moving into a safe and healthy home, it also deters meth users and cooks from renting your property in the first place as they know that it will be tested again when they vacate.
We use independant meth testing companies to do the tests. Costs vary according to the size of the property. On average the initial test is $225.
