INSPECTIONS - BUILDING

Duration the construction of a new building it be subjected to various inspections construction as listed on the notification and compliance statement form, submitted by the builder at the completion of each inspection stage. Some inspections may waived if a structural engineer certifies that the work has been carried out correctly.

Once work begins on your home it may be a good idea to keep a record of the progress of the construction and note any defects you have requested to be fixed. Note any different PC items detailing the date requested, the quoted price, and the date it was agreed it would be done by. if you get the builder to sign the page, this is sufficient to amend the contract, although it should later be attached to the contract. This will help you keep on top of the construction progress and minimise misunderstandings.
