When should I get a Meth Test?
The initio insurance policy does not require Meth Testing, however there are times when we recommend that you obtain a meth test.
When you purchase a property
Real estate agents only have to tell potential buyers if a property has a meth contamination reading over 15 μg/100 cm2. However, your insurer may not provide insurance if the result is over 1.5 μg/100 cm2; and you cannot tenant a property that exceeds 1.5 μg/100 cm2.
In between tenants
Again you cannot tenant a property that exceeds 1.5 μg/100 cm2, so to avoid future hearings at the tenancy tribunal, you should be testing the property in between tenancies.
If you suspect drug use or manufacture
If you see signs of drug use or manufacture; or if the police have drug raided the property, you need to get it tested for methamphetamine contamination.
