Progress Claim Assessments (Site inspection + back office report)

If you’re building a new home or renovating an existing property, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the paperwork and level of technical detail required to keep it on track. What does the contract mean? Do you know what you are paying for? Does the construction meet building code? Are you paying for works that haven’t been completed?

General-Purpose Building Defect Report

  • A general-purpose building defect report covers minor, major & non-compliance matters within the built form.
  • It is most common for the consumer to engage a consultant to assess recently completed building works or a project close to the warranty expiry date in order for the consumer to be aware of any current and possible future defects in order to limit current or future liabilities and hold the building contractor accountable for their work at handover stage or prior to paying the building contractor his final payment, settling on a new build, or prior to the two year or six year period due date for all residential dwellings
  • OUR OFFICE IS FREQUENTLY ENGAGED TO CARRY OUT GENERAL-PURPOSE BUILDING DEFECT REPORTS AND ON AVERAGE OUR INSPECTORS FIND BETWEEN 100 – 200 DEFECTS PER NEW DWELLING THAT THEY ASSESS.
  • WE RECOMMEND PRIOR TO ENGAGING THE PROPERTY INSPECTORS THAT YOU REVIEW OUR FEE STRUCTURE AS IT IS COMMON THAT WE ARE ENGAGED FOR 20 – 40 DEFECTS PER REPORT WHICH INEVITABLY END UP BEING A PROJECT THAT IS EXTENDED OUT TO A REPORT THAT CONSISTS OF 200 DEFECTS.
