Hire Experts in Residential Handover Inspections

You have been intimately involved in the construction of your new home for months. The end of construction is almost in sight and you are already planning where the furniture should  go, but before you sign off to take possession, did you ensure that you examined  every facet  of the build for compliance and workmanship? Have you had a Handover or Completion Inspection in Adelaide?

A handover inspection is an complete assessment  of your brand new house BEFORE you take ownership. This is where Resicert will go through all aspects in the house, from foundations to the ridge beam and make sure everything is as it should be.

Inspection in Adelaide

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

REF: Building Commission: Notice to the Homeowner

Why do you need a handover inspection?

This is your last chance to detect  any concerns  with the property before you take ownership and the contractor leaves. You want everything to be right in order to avoid disputes with the building contractor  later on who is responsible for the problem and whether it is protected  by your warranty.

What will our Resicert inspector do?

The inspector will pay attention to any specific concerns you may have about many things  that may be a problem, but you don’t feel the contractor has given a complete answer for. The inspector will complete a top to bottom inspection, inside and out including:

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

You want to ensure you are getting exactly what was expected.

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

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.

The price depends on some factors. To provide a quote we need to know something more about your house. Use the form on this page, and tell us a little bit more about the property.
