Pre Hand Over – New Homes
When building a new home, you entrust your plans with your builder. It is an exciting time to see those plans come to fruition, especially when you make your last payment to your builder, and they hand over your new set of keys. But, before you do, be sure to call Building Inspections Melbourne so that we can provide you with a Pre Hand Over Inspection (also called a Practical Completion Inspection) on your behalf. We have seen plenty of families left disappointed when they discover faults, defects, and below par workmanship, only after they move into their new home.
What adds to the disappointment is the fact that your builder may not be as willing to come and fix the problem after they have already been paid. The simple solution to avoiding this situation is to get our team to inspect your home before you sign off on the job by making the final payment to the builder. A New Home Pre Hand Over Inspection will help you to take back control of your new home build, and make sure your builder is accountable for any faults before your family move in.
Our independent building inspectors will go through your home top to bottom and will inspect all areas of your home including:
* The roof frame- we will look inside and outside including the tiles, ridges, flashings, guttering, and insulation, ensuring that these areas are constructed to all standards and regulations.
* The interior- we will ensure that your walls are all perpendicular and that your walls and paintwork is smooth and unscratched. We will also ensure that all other fixtures and fittings such as doors, hinges, window frames, and bathroom, kitchen and laundry facilities are all installed correctly and in good working order.
* All light fixtures and fittings- we inspect all electrical installations for safety and correct connections. The same is done for internal plumbing.
* Woodwork and finishings- we will look for any possible defects such as scratched flooring, frames, and benches.
All defects we encounter will be listed in our report and will be supported by high quality colour photographs.
With an uncompromising eye for detail, our inspectors will ensure that your home is built to your specifications, and you are made fully aware if any defects may have occurred during the building process.
