Handover Reports


Has your builder advised you that your house has finished, but you don’t feel confident to pick up any poor workmanship or faulty materials at the final inspection?

Or have you taken the keys and you have a nagging doubt that things are not quite right? Has your builder made an obvious mistake and you are unsure about the less-obvious ones?

Andrew can inspect your new home as it is being built at any stage

–          Before completion

–          Immediately after completion

–          even 5 years after completion!

He will provide a comprehensive report which not only lists the faults, but describes why they are faulty and gives a reference to the relevant Australian Standard or Building Code.

Other inspectors may only give you a list of faults, which will not help you get the faults rectified through the Building Commission Disputes Procedure.

You will need to give Andrew a copy of the latest plans and specifications before he goes to inspect the works.

If your house has been completed for some years, there may be a requirement to provide a report with greater detail, ready for the Building Commission. This greater level of detail may require additional time and costs. Talk to Andrew about your particular building problems.
