Practical Completion Inspections / Handover Inspections
A handover inspection or practical completion inspection is carried out for the purchaser of a newly constructed home and takes place once all tradesmen have completed or practically completed all works.
The home will be thoroughly inspected by an independent licensed building inspector who is also an independent licensed builder, to make sure everything is how it should be.
The general purpose of the inspection is to ensure that the property is practically complete, ready to be occupied, and that all building work is of a high standard. You will be provided with a report which includes photos of defects, and identifies any inadequate or poor workmanship, incomplete finishes, defects and imperfections. You can then request your builder to rectify these matters.
