The handover inspections and Property Inspections Melbourne allow the buyer to get the house they’re interested in purchasing inspected and get the structural or other issues rectified on time. At Casey Building Inspections, we understand that building your own home can be a daunting prospect and many builders leave you in the dark as to what you should be getting. The standard phrase of its ok we will fix these items during the maintenance period is often used just to get you to sign the final documents so they can get their money.

Then the games begin where you get the run around can’t contact the person you need to or they no longer work for the company and the favourite is we don’t have a record of this. Trying to get past the gatekeepers and get answers can be extremely difficult and frustrating and time-consuming.


Casey Building Inspections has been in the business for a while, we have worked with a wide range of clients and share our experience and skills to help you make a wise purchasing decision. We offer dedicated house final inspection services and home inspections Melbourne; we provide comprehensive reports and digital images based on our inspection on the same day.

Q - What is a handover inspection?

A – Building a home entails many steps like securing financing, finding the site, choosing the right builder, selecting the finishes, and then the construction process.

In the final stages of construction and before the building is handed over to you, inspections are carried out, and a handover report is submitted to ensure the house is built correctly, is in a liveable condition, and meets the requirements.

Q - Why is the handover inspection so important?

A – Before making the final payment, the last opportunity is to determine if anything has been overlooked or done incorrectly. After you have paid the builder, they are less likely in some cases to assist you during the warranty period, which is why it is crucial to get it right. Using a trained professional for this handover inspection service is essential.

Q - What does the handover inspection process look like?

A – In most cases, your builder will provide you with two to three weeks’ notice when the property is ready to be handed over. We recommend that you contact a qualified building inspector such as Casey Building Inspections for the house’s final inspection thoroughly.

After receiving the report, your builder is asked to correct all the defects before handover. Then, a follow-up inspection and report can be conducted at your request to ensure the works identified have been completed.

Q - What is covered in a Handover inspection report?

A – As part of a handover report, the inspector checks the quality of the construction to ensure that it complies with industry standards.

Q - Does the report include photos?

A – The handover inspection reports include digital photos of the defects found during the inspection.
