Investment property meth testing is increasing and may become a standard test requested by landlords and property managers.

They need to make sure the property is safe for their tenants. Testing is performed before and after tenants live in the property to make sure it is free from contamination. It is a good idea to have this test performed on all investment properties.

When looking to purchase a home or apartment as an investment, testing for meth is often overlooked. Testing for meth contamination ensures you are buying a safe property.

The professionals at NCPI (National Contaminated Property Investigations) test properties as part of pre and post renting. Many landlords opt to have this test if they have a suspicion.

If the property is not tested before it is rented and a problem arises in the future, the landlord can lose at the Tenancy Tribunal hearing and can potentially be sued.

Many tenants are choosing to have this test done on their own. This can lead to claims against the landlord and property managers.

Pro-active testing between tenancies provides the landlord with information on the person responsible for meth contamination.

The furniture of the tenants may be affected by cross contamination and many claims have been successful against the landlord to replace possessions that have become contaminated .

1. FIELD COMPOSITE

In this test, several samples are taken from the property and mixed in one test tube. It is then sent to the lab for testing.
The results will give an accumulative total.

2. LABORATORY COMPOSITE

Individual samples are taken in separate tubes and referred to the laboratory for analysis.
The laboratory extracts a specific amount from each individual tube and the results are an average
of the samples taken.
