HANDOVER REPORTS2018-05-30T10:41:24+00:00



If you’ve had a new home built, it’s imperative that you have the property assessed by a professional so that you can be sure the building has been constructed to the required standard and is safe enough to officially move in to.

Our inspectors provide thorough handover reports that provide comprehensive details about the state of the building from a structural standpoint.

This would include any potential issues that could be faced in the future, small defects that need to be corrected by the builder and anything that is poorly constructed in terms of workmanship.

The report will also identify any areas the inspector was unable to access on the day of the property inspection.

Photographs may be included to illustrate defects and/or areas of concern that the inspector has noticed in the course of the inspection.


The Pro Property pest inspectors carry out a complete and thorough inspection to all accessible parts of the property. These include the following areas:

  • Interior of the building
  • Exterior of the building
  • Roof space
  • Under-floor space
  • Roof exterior (subject to health and safety regulations)
  • Garage, carport and garden shed
  • Separate laundry or toilet
  • Small retaining walls (ie. non-structural)
  • Steps, fencing, paths and driveways

It’s important to remember that a Handover Report is not an all-encompassing report dealing with every single aspect of the property, and it is not a warranty against defects.


We recently had our pre-purchase inspection carried out by David Cumming from the Central Coast office.

We are very happy with the detailed report and David’s availability to discuss the findings in the report.

David was quite knowledgeable and explained things in layman language that we could understand.

We would recommend his services or use him again if the need arose..
