New Home Handover Inspection

Practical Completion Inspections

Post Handover/Warranty Inspection

Be certain before making your final payment

A handover or home inspection covers the final stage of the construction in a home. It is critical to perform this inspection with someone that knows what should be expected in the assessment. An independent, experienced professional will ensure that your home is built to completion, at an acceptable industry standard.

This is the best opportunity to assess all finished works and identify any defects to the builder before the final payment is made. We will highlight non-compliancies, incomplete works, substandard workmanship and poor attention to detail, finishing element defects and any safety concerns.

All building works will be thoroughly checked with any discrepancies to the Victorian Building Authorities Guide to Standards and Tolerances 2015 identified and compiled in a detailed, photographic PDF report.

The unbiased independent assessment covers both the interior and exterior of the dwelling, sub-floor, roof space and roof exterior. It also includes assessment of the property’s site such as driveways, paths, drainage issues, fencing and retaining walls.

Blooms’ Handover, New home and Practical Completion Inspection (PCI) reports are completed and compiled by a certified, fully insured, registered builder with over 20 years experience in the industry. The same process apples to home maintenance inspection or home warranty inspection to be carried out shortly after moving in to your new dwelling.

The scope of the inspection covers the site, it’s buildings interiors and exteriors, roofing, roof voids, subfloors, garages, sheds, pergolas, decking, driveways, paths, surface drainage, fencing and more!


Step 4: Verbal Briefing

At the conclusion of the site inspection, our inspector will call you to summarise the findings and discuss any significant issues or concerns noted during the inspection. This provides instant feed back on the property inspected. It is a critical component of ensuring that reported defects, safety issues and required maintenance issues are clearly understood. This often prompts many questions regarding the property which enables us to clarify and further describe findings and outcomes.


Step 5: Compile Report

Compiling the report involves collating all of the inspection information together and presenting it in a thorough, detailed, yet understanding format. This can take a few hours itself but we believe it is worth the effort. The report clearly identifies minor and major defects including potential safety hazards, structural defects and if requested to do so, timber pest findings and recommendations.  The report is sent electronically, usually the night of the inspection.

After receiving the report we are always available for further discussions and clarification. When you become a customer of ours we hope and believe you are entitled to remain one. We will happily offer ongoing further advise on the property itself and also any future properties you may be considering.
