Handovers

Practical Completion Reports

Practical Completion Reports (or sometimes known as Handover reports) are valuable reports to obtain. When you finishing building a house, a practical Completion Report allows you to achieve peace of mind by being assured that the building is built to not only Australian Standards but also your own.
It is common for people to assume that because a when house is newly built, nothing could be wrong with the standard of the construction.  It is a very regular thing for builders or their contractors to make mistakes and for that reason we suggest that following the completion of your new home or investment you book a practical completion inspection so that you know that you aren’t going to have to out lay money in the near future to fix mistakes that shouldn’t have been made.
Our handovers highlight poor finishes, poor workmanship, incomplete work and bridging of termite barriers.

How Everyone Benefits from Our Handovers:

You as the homeowner gains confidence by having an independent assessment of the quality of work so you can make your final payment with confidence.

Your builder gains confidence s from having the opportunity to correct any defects sooner rather than later which can be costly by having trades return to the site.

A property owner may be wondering why you would need a structural inspection for your new home anyway. Builders are increasingly pushed to undertake quality construction with rising costs in a competitive home market. On many occasions it is the contractors that have let down the builder with the builder unaware of the contractors faults or lack of attention to detail.   Even respected builders can have differing standards in quality. Most builders are concerned that mistakes and faulty workmanship with the cost of associated re-work may damage their reputation.

A property owner may be wondering why you would need a timber pest inspection when you've just had new termite barriers and protection systems installed. Termite barriers, which are installed early in the construction process, can be damaged or compromised by following construction activity. Problems encountered are physical damage to the barrier, relocation of incorrectly positioned waste pipes and slab penetrations, landscaping and paving built up above the weep holes or rendering over inspection zones. Most termite barrier and termite prevention systems will require a timber pest 6 months after installation. There is also 12 Monthly ongoing inspections requires to maintain termite barrier warranties.
