What is a final inspection report?
These reports are completed just prior to taking possession of a newly constructed property, in order to identify any outstanding issues and get them addressed by the builder before you sign off and take ownership.
The benefits of a final inspection / handover report
- You benefit by having an independent assessment of the quality of work so you can make your final payment with confidence
- Your builder benefits from having the opportunity to correct any defects sooner rather than later which can be costly
Builders are increasingly challenged to deliver quality construction with rising building costs in a competitive new home market. Even respected builders can have variations in quality. Most builders are concerned that errors and poor workmanship with the cost of associated re-work may destroy their reputation.
