Practical Completion and Handover Inspections

Practical Completion/Hand Over Inspections

Practical Completion Inspection

An independent Handover, or Practical Completion Inspection by a 3rd party professional is paramount in safeguarding your investment in a new home or investment property.

The Report

A report will provide you with a clear and concise document,  including annotated digital photographs, recommendations and comment. All reports are customised and are prepared specifically for your property.  We recommend the report as an important tool prior to making that final payment and accepting those keys to the front door.

A standard Pre Handover Inspection report will include a list of outstanding or defective items. The list is open for discussion with your builder at time of handover.

Our standard inspection covers the following areas:

  • The property and any out buildings and fencing within 30 metres of the main building.
  • We check that all works have been completed in accordance with your contract and specification, and have been completed to an acceptable industry standard.
  • The visible exterior of roof.
  • The visible exterior of the buildings walls, windows, and foundations
  • The Roof space where accessible
  • The sub- floor space where accessible
  • The interior of the building.

Defects not identified at time of handover may not be rectified by your builder.
