Practical Completion Inspection

Our inspectors thoroughly inspect each and every area of your new property for potential defects. Having these issues fixed early saves you and your builder time and money.

What's involved in a Practical Completion Inspection

A Practical Completion Inspection happens towards the end of the new build after the property is fit for occupation and work has been completed as per the build contract.

The items we usually inspect in these inspections are:
  • Roof coverings
  • External areas
  • Internal areas
  • Roof cavity
  • Verify termite treatment
  • Testing of all accessible windows & doors
  • Take note of all damage, nicks and dents to window glass and frames, tiles, shower frames, mirrors, cabinetry, handles, benchtops, toilets & sinks

Why it's important

New build inspections provide an opportunity to identify any potential defects in your new home so that they can be rectified immediately. This will save you and your builder time and money in the long run making it the most critical inspection conducted throughout the build of a new home.

We provide detailed reports with all of our inspections.

Termite damage and structural issues can cause huge financial headaches for new home buyers. Therefore contacting a building inspector to conduct a pre-purchase building and pest inspection should be an essential part of your due diligence process.

A building and pest inspection can take anywhere between 1 to 2 hours depending on the size of the property and the type of inspection.

During a building and pest inspection the inspector will analyse each area outlined in the inspection chosen by the buyer and complete a final report which outlines any defects, issues, or anything else impacting the property’s condition.

A Practical Completion Inspection should occur when the house is technically habitable. The builder will usually let you know when this time is approaching so that a time for this inspection can be arranged.
