Handover Inspection

Before you take possession of a newly constructed property, get the peace-of-mind that you’re getting what you paid for with a handover inspection in Melbourne.

When do you need a handover inspection?

We carry out new home inspections in Melbourne before the handover of a property. It’s generally the final stage in the construction of a home or unit, and provides an independent review of the condition of the property – so there’s no need to rely on the builder for the final quality check.

A handover inspection is carried out with the aim of making sure the home has been completed to the agreed-upon standards, and that it meets industry expectations. As independent property inspection experts, we work for you as the buyer to identify any outstanding defects and advise on any further necessary actions. Our handover reports are created without prejudice, and is an objective assessment of the property at the time of the inspection.

We’re only able to carry out inspections once the build of the property is complete. Get in touch with us when you’re satisfied that the builder and all other tradesmen have completely finished their work, before ordering a handover inspection report from Site Inspections.
