Request a Pre Handover Inspection in Brisbane

At ASBIR, we believe informed decisions are the best decisions, especially when it comes to something as crucial as buying a new home or commercial property. Before you complete that final payment and prepare to move in, make sure you know exactly what you’re buying into by requesting a pre handover inspection.

What is a Pre Handover Inspection?

A pre handover inspection report is the most important inspection report you’ll need when purchasing a newly built property. Also known as a Practical Completion Inspection (PCI) Report, a handover inspection report details the condition of a property, evaluating the quality of its construction as well as identifying any issues in its structure, design and materials.

As a final opportunity to evaluate your new property and report defects to your builder for rectification, it’s important to get a knowledgeable team in to quickly identify any flaws.

Our reports will assess all aspects of your building’s construction, including:

  • All internal and external structures
  • The quality of the building materials
  • Roofing, gutter system, fencing
  • Floors, tiles, and ceiling construction

We provide you with professional and practical advice to ensure your new property is something to celebrate.
