Final Or Handover
Final Or Handover Sample Report 1 Sample Report 2
The PCI or Handover inspection is conducted once the house is fully complete as per the contract. We generally allow up to 3 hours for this inspection, however this may vary depending on the size of the home and the amount of defects noted.
For larger homes 40sq + we would allow additional time. If you are unsure, please ask the consultant conducting the inspection if they require more or less time on a particular job.
Once the client has received the notice of completion and the final claim invoice from the Builder, this is the time to schedule the final inspection. It is preferable to have this inspection conducted at the same time as the new home presentation/walk through presentation with the builder. We ask our client to confirm with their builder that the certificate of occupancy has been obtained prior to this final inspection.
If they have a HIA contract, we would refer the client to sections 36 & 37 for the final stage of the house and providing their builder with a list of known defects.
We ask the clients to please ensure that the house is 100% complete as per their building contract prior to scheduling the final inspection. This to ensure we can provide you with the best service possible.
