Description: This report is the third study into the condition of homes in New Zealand. Previous surveys were carried out in 1994 and 1999. Common defects found in earlier surveys were also present in this survey. The condition of interiors of older homes is still better than that of exteriors, however differences are reducing. This report focuses on a group of houses that broadly represent the underlying range of design, ages and varying conditions of New Zealand houses.
