Some people consider that because a home is brand new and has only just been completed or is about to be completed, that everything should be perfect and faultless. IT SHOULD BUT GENERALLY IS NOT.

This report is a detailed step by step analysis of the completeness of a new home and checks the purpose, fitting and function of over 300 items or potential issues that may be found in a new home, including but not limited to

  • Structure
  • External finishes
  • Seals and gaskets
  • Connections and joints
  • Internal timber fittings
  • Internal fitted furniture
  • Appliances
  • Health and Safety and Means of Escape
  • Building Regulation compliance
  • Groundworks
  • Access
  • Ongoing site conditions

Once you have taken possession it can be difficult to obtain a response from the developer for fault rectification. Once you have furnished your new home, some faults can lie undetected for long periods of time, and when discovered, may no longer fall within the scope of a guarantee or warranty.

This report helps to make sure that you actually get what you are paying for and that the product has not been mis-sold.
