Whats the cost to rebuild my house?
Has your insurer provided you the right home sum insured value?
We offer a range of options to help homeowners, property managers, commercial owners and the like through the process of ensuring you are ready for dealing with telling your insurer how much your asset will cost to rebuild. This has been standard in the commercial sector, but for residential homeowners the shift to the Home Sum Insured cap, has left many homeowners either unaware, confused and unsure about what to do. Obtaining the correct advice from a qualified professional has been highlighted in media programmes such as Fair Go and Campbell Live. Cambell Live’s media programme specifically recommended seeking advice from members of the RICS. We have over twenty five years experience in estimating construction costs on some of the worlds largest and complex projects as well as multiple residential and commercial properties across Canterbury, ranging from single garage units to multi million dollar homes.
