Pre-Purchase (Handover) Building Inspections
Unfinished work located during a pre purchase inspection
A handover report, or pre-purchase property report, is a report for the purchaser of a newly constructed home and takes place prior to the purchaser taking possession of their new home.
As an independent party we work for the purchaser to identify any outstanding defects and/or incomplete finishes. A handover inspection and report will highlight in more detail minor defects and imperfections as well as general building defects, and poor workmanship.
Poor workmanship located during a pre purchase inspection
This is an overall report where we are looking to ensure that the property is complete and ready for the new purchasers to move in.
Unfortunately we are often called upon to carry out an inspection only to find the property is not finished. As we do not want to waste our time, and or your money, it is important that you are satisfied that the builder and all other tradesman have completely finished before ordering your Handover inspection report.
Prices to carry out a Handover Inspection Report start at $380.00 for a single storey property up to 150 sq meters and the $1.50 per square meter thereafter include GST.
