Experienced Residential Handover Inspectors You Can Trust

You have been closely involved in the building of your new house for months. The end of the construction is near and you are already planning where the furniture should  go, but before you sign off to take possession, did you ensure that you inspected every characteristic of the building for compliance and workmanship? Have you had a Handover or Completion Inspection in Brisbane or Sunshine Coast?

A handover inspection is an assessment  of your brand new home BEFORE you buy it. This is where Resicert will follow through everything in the house, from foundations to the ridge beam and make sure everything is as it should be.

You could do this yourself but we recommend a professional home inspector. After all, you have been involved in the building of your house from the first day and there are things you will not see because they are now so familiar to you.

Inspection in Brisbane or Sunshine Coast

A builder must not prevent you (or a person authorised in writing to represent you) or your lending institution from examining the property work as allowed by the contract or by regulations under the Act. A contract cannot stop inspections except by limiting them to normal working hours or preventing inspections that would unreasonably restrict or prevent  the building work.

REF: Building Commission: Notice to the Homeowner

Why do you need a handover inspection?

This is your last attempt to find any problems with the building before you take ownership and the contractor leaves. You want everything to be right in order to prevent  disputes with the builder later on who is responsible for the problem and whether it is covered by the  warranty.

What will our Building inspector do?

The inspector will take note of any specific concerns you may have about anything that could be a problem, but you don’t feel the contractor has given a complete answer for. The inspector will finish a top to bottom inspection, inside and out including:

  • Roof and flashing
  • Exterior walls and siding
  • Basement walls and foundation
  • Every room including any fixtures, fittings, door and window hardware
  • Drainage (if there was any required)
  • Examine and  make sure all work is complete.
  • Assess the quality of the work.
  • Guarantee that you are getting exactly what you paid for.

You want to ensure you are receiving exactly what you  expected. Resicert Handover Defect Inspection Services are the professionals with the reputation and experience you need.

All of our reports are clear and easy to read and are available usually within 48 hours. You will also receive a complete oral report before the inspector goes away.

We have 4 different levels of inspections available. All reports cover structural certainty, roof cavity, subfloor, interior of every room, outside house perimeter, fences, outbuildings and trees.

The higher the inspection level, the more detail about the home you will receive in the reporting process.
