New Build Stage Inspection

Having a new home built? Australian Building Inspection Service’s Construction Stage and Final Handover Inspections looks after your interests and takes a lot of stress out of building a new home.

Most new home build contracts require “stage” payments to be made to the builder as construction progresses. The stages typically are Base, Frame, Lock-Up, Fit-Out, Fixing and Handover. As a stage is reached (or with most builders a little before) a request for a stage payment is made.

An ABIS stage inspection is conducted around this time with two major objectives: 1) to confirm that the stage has been achieved and, 2) to report of any significant defects in the work done to date for the builder to address. This is particularly important to both you and the builder as it identifies any issues before they become hidden by further work. It is often easier to fix issues early rather than waiting till further in the construction.

It’s also good to have an ABIS builder looking after your interests independently and communicating any issues identified with your builder in their own language. ABIS can help you maintain a good relationship with your builder during the construction process.

Although the builder employs a certifier to sign off that the building work meets minimum requirements of the Australian Construction Code, ABIS stage inspections and handovers view the work against a good tradesman-like standard rather than just meeting a minimum.

ABIS building and pest inspections are conducted to the highest standard by building inspectors with a minimum of 10 years experience together with the highest professional qualifications in their field. ABIS has been in business over 27 years conducting both building and timber pest inspections.

Our highly recommended home inspectors are all long term trusted employees not here today gone tomorrow sub-contractors. ABIS Inspectors are supported by a unique computer aided inspection system and the latest inspection equipment such as high sensitivity thermal cameras costing thousands of dollars that others don’t often have.

When you book a pre-purchase inspection with ABIS, our friendly local (they know the area and are not in a interstate or overseas call centre) staff will make the whole process easy for you. Our Office team make all the arrangements with you, your agent, the vendor, the tenant (if there is one) and you will be sent an email to confirm the inspection time along with a pre-engagement letter which covers the scope of the inspection. Good communication and local knowledge are key to you getting the most out of your building and pest inspection. We are always happy to answer all your questions and you are most welcome to be on site when we do the inspection. Our technology, systems and processes also mean you get your high quality report shortly after your inspection is completed.

And all this for an incredible low price.
