Handover Inspections

“We are here for you whether you’re buying the family home you’ve always wanted or an investment property in a neighborhood. We help make choices about real estate easy. Building checks before you buy can mean the difference between a good investment that’s worth the money and one that comes with a lot of risk. We’ve done great work for past clients and homeowners on their handover inspections, and our detailed and thorough building inspection reports have saved them thousands of dollars.

Our skilled building inspectors keep an eye on every step of the building process.

A pre-purchase inspection and a building inspection for a new home are done in a slightly different order of steps. During the whole building process, the assigned building inspector does a total of 4 checks. These regular checks make sure that all parts of the building process have been adhered to and ensure that the builder has rectified any past defects as required under the building code.

PCI Inspections

It’s also called a Practical Completion Inspection (PCI). A new home completion inspection is the last check that the builders do before handing over the keys to the new owners. It’s important to remember that this is the last chance to check the work before the builder hands over the keys and any final payments are made.

There are a lot of things on the defect list that the builders might not think are “important,” and are not their responsibility but trust us, it becomes difficult once you move in for the builder to attend to past recorded defects. A lot of people don’t know that the Domestic Building Contract Act says the builder has to make sure that all the work they agreed to do meets all the standards before they can ask for final payment. This is why a PCI is so important, even if the results look good on the surface.

Advance Tools & Technology​

Moisture Meters

Moisture meters are used to detect the presence & levels of moisture within building materials such as wood, drywall, & concrete. These meters help identify areas of potential water damage, leaks, or moisture intrusion, which leads to structural issues or mold growth.

thermal-camera-2

Thermal Camera

Infrared camera building inspections identify problems by viewing differences in temperature on a gradient scale through thermal imaging. his is a non-invasive temperature measurement tool that can keep you from spending money on repairs in the future.

Borescope

A borescope is a flexible tube with a camera and light attached to it. It’s used to visually inspect areas that are difficult to access, such as inside wall cavities, ductwork, or pipes. By using borescope, our inspectors can examine the condition of hidden components and identify any defects or damages.

Termatrac Device

Termatrac’s detection technology is unique to the market, designed and specifically calibrated to detect termites and other insect activity. The radar technology confirms movement by penetrating through most building materials to locate and track termite and other insect activity.
