Building Handover Inspection Report

A Final/Handover Building Report is a post construction inspection which identifies any and all defects, incomplete work and/or poor or substandard finish. Handover Inspections are carried out for newly completed, buildings or additions to a building.

Common defects which are usually found include items such as paint overruns, scratches to glass, damage to aluminum window frames, walls built out of plumb beyond normal tolerances, bulging plasterboard, defective cavity and sill flashing details, defects to cabinetry and many more.

Some of the defects are missed by builders as they are seeing these things everyday but are not noticing them. This report is for both parties to be aware of any defects prior to the Building being occupied or handed over for rental.

It is highly recommended that this report be done before taking possession of the building, so that scratches, Broken items and minor imperfections cannot be classed as wear and tear.

A handover report is a comprehensive inspection report specifically focused on defects and/or substandard work that may or may not comply with the building code. This report is conducted prior to the purchaser taking possession of a new home. It is an overall report where we are looking to ensure that the property is complete and ready for the Purchaser.
