New Home Inspections Croydon
Thinking about the best way to protect your investment in your new home in the Melbourne suburb of Croydon? The answer is to have a new home inspection carried out. This will ensure that all work in your new home has been completed to an acceptable standard before you move in.
Unfortunately you can't assume that just because your home is new that it does not have any faults. That's why the only way you make sure you know what you're buying to have a new home inspection. It really is a small investment to make sure you know what you're buying.
A new home inspection definitely needs to be done before you make final payment to your builder. This is because it is usually much harder to get faults fixed once payment is made.
However, in addition to doing an inspection before final payment is made, it is recommended that various building inspections are carried out during the build. This is usually done at various stages of the build when a progress payment is due. At each stage, we identify any defects in your new home, as well as any non compliant issues. We do this by using a detailed checklist that identifies defects at every stage of the build of your new home in Croydon.
