Methamphetamine is a terrible drug leaving a swath of destruction in its path with purchasers of contaminated homes being one of the victims.

In order to protect yourself, if you are thinking of buying a home, be it a stand alone dwelling or unit, we would encourage you to get a methamphetamine test as part of your pre-purchase due diligence particularly if it has ever been a rental property. This can be arranged by contacting one of the methamphetamine test providers in your area and should cost from $179 for a basic test to $2,500 for a detailed investigation.  It is also a good idea to make written enquiry with the real estate agent selling the property as to whether they have any knowledge of methamphetamine presence on the property.
