Practical Completion Inspection



Cost $650

Building a new dream home is one of the most exciting events in life, even more so as your home nears completion. However, after you’ve made the final payment and received your keys, do you really know what sort of home you’ll be entering?

It is often only after the final handover stage that problems within a property arise, and all of those niggling issues you uncover can quickly become a major problem when trying to have them rectified by your builder once you have paid the final balance of your account. 

Stop your dream home from becoming a nightmare by having us complete a practical completion inspection. We’ll go over all the items listed in your building contract with a fine-tooth comb, giving you complete peace-of-mind before you’re given the keys to the home of your dreams.
