Handover Inspections:

Let us do a thorough inspection on your new home before handover to make sure your builder has done the right thing and built everything to a quality standard. We have done a many of these inspections and always find a lot of defects that the average person would not see. These defects are always easier to have rectified before you do the handover. This is the same detailed inspection as the pre purchase inspection and can be used to give peace of mind before moving into your new home.

We have found in the past that a builder with a trusted name will have minimal effect on the final outcome when you purchase a property. The only real determinant of a great property is who worked on the job and how well was he or she supervised. When its time for you to go through handover of your new home, whether you are investing or intending to live in your purchase, you need to call us to have it thoroughly inspected first.
