New Home Building Inspections

re You Buying a Home Off the Plan?
Having a new home built is a huge undertaking – one in which you are highly reliant on obtaining professional advice in order to achieve the best outcome. Most homeowners have little to no building or construction knowledge, and as a result, they rely on contractors and builders to complete the project to an acceptable industry standard.

This can put you as a new property owner at a disadvantage because you have to rely on the builder’s word, even if you suspect that something may be wrong. However, you do have the option of letting JKB Property Inspections perform a thorough building construction inspection on your behalf. This will help you in a few ways, including:

  • Managing your relationship with your builder in your behalf
  • Providing you with an expert you can rely on
  • Ensuring that you get what you have paid for

Our New Home Building Inspections Will Highlight:

Within 24 hours of an inspection being performed, you will receive a report detailing aspects such as:

  • Incomplete work
  • Safety hazards
  • Substandard workmanship
  • Suspected non-compliance with regards to specifications and contracts

When Should Inspection Be Performed?

You can hire our services at any time while your home is being built. However, most people choose to engage us s construction begins so that we can inspect all stages of the project.

In some cases though, buyers have our inspectors attend a site only when they have particular concerns or during the final handover stage – before the last payment is made.

Here at JKB Property Inspections, we use the Australian Guide to Standards and Tolerances as the basis for inspections, along with other relevant Australian Standards and the National Construction Code.

Doing Renovations or Adding an Extension?

Although you may not be building an entire new home, the cost of some renovations and extension projects can be just as high. In addition, the work can be far more complex. We are able to provide you with a renovation inspection report for any work done. This will help you:

  • Prepare the right scopes of work and consider tenders from various subcontractors
  • Plan your renovations
  • Monitor the work being done by builders or subcontractors to check for incomplete work, substandard installations or suspected non-compliance
  • Approve payments for contractors (if required)

Enlisting the help of a building inspector from JKB Property inspections will not only help you build a relationship with your builder; it will be easier to prevent disagreements arising with regards to inclusions and costs as well.

Within 24 hours of the inspection being done, you will receive an emailed report, which will list the following:

  • Suspected non-compliances
  • Safety hazards
  • Incomplete work
  • Substandard workmanship
  • Other suspected non-compliances with regards to specifications and contracts

Our services can be requested from the beginning of your construction project so that we can help you prepare scopes of work and draw up contracts or agreements with your chosen builders or subcontractors. If preferred, we can perform inspections prior to making staged payments to ensure that everything has been completed according to the appropriate standards.
