WHY SHOULD I HAVE A FINAL HANDOVER REPORT COMPILED
Defects commonly identified in new houses range from major structural issues to minor cosmetic defective surfaces (eg scuff marks, minor scratches etc). Many of these defects may not be obvious, and if not adequately repaired, may only become apparent after living in the property for some time. Getting the builder and tradespeople back after handover can be time consuming, create headaches, and is very stressful to the new homeowner. Ideally your new home should be perfect when you settle.
A Melbourne Hose Check Inspection Report will list all defects, incomplete works and/or poor quality workmanship. The report will include detailed narratives, photographs for visual reference, and also refer to building codes and standards where relevant.
