What is a New Home Inspection?

A ‘New home inspection’ or ‘Final Inspection’ is carried out when a property has been recently completed – as new.

Why should I get a New Home inspection?

New properties can contain significant problems, poor workmanship and safety hazards. All properties have minor defects and incomplete items of work at completion. These issues need to be identified and documented before purchase, before handover or prior to the builder receiving final payments. The builder can then rectify the issues before you move in or you may decide to not proceed with the sale depending on the nature of the defects and the Builder’s attitude towards rectification.

In addition to identifying defects, poor workmanship and incomplete items our building consultants will also recommend a list of documentation, approvals and certificates that should be obtained from the builder or owner prior to purchase or handover.
