E- L O G I C S I G N A T U R E HANDOVER AND INSPECTION PROCESS
What is Quality Workmanship ?
Sadly, you, as the purchaser of this new home or new unit are subject to the building company’s interpretation of quality workmanship and industry standards. We find that many people at handover of a new unit or new home do not understand or even know what the relevant industry standards are and do not have the skills or knowledge to identify quality or poor workmanship.
E- L O G I C S I G N A T U R E works to ensure you get what you pay for at Handover
E- L O G I C is an organization designed to ensure you get what you pay for. For over 16 years we have been working with new home buyers to provide final quality control on their new investment. We inspect, advise and mediate with builders on your behalf to ensure that the property you are investing your money in is precisely the quality you deserve.
E- L O G I C S I G N A T U R E have achieved strong recognition within the industry to the extent that some builders even use us to review workmanship as part of their Quality Assurance programs within their organizations.
When its time for you to go through handover of your new home or unit, whether you are investing or intending to live in your purchase,

MAINTENANCE PERIOD INSPECTIONS
We also conduct 3, 6 or 12 month maintenance inspections during the defects liability period. A builder must conduct these compulsory inspections provided the new owner requests them. We can assist by conducting an inspection on your behalf to identify any problems. Some items we find at a maintenance inspection include, cracking in plasterboard or cornices, cracked floor tiles from movement, binding internal doors, leaking traps under sinks or basins and the breakdown of sealant.
In addition to Handover/Practical Completion and Maintenance Inspections, Handovers.com offer Stage Inspections throughout your build. These include Frame Inspections, Lock up/Enclosed Inspections and Fixing Inspections.
These inspections are to identify non-structural quality defects, workmanship and incomplete works, something the Building Certifier and Engineer do not look at and is usually up to the building supervisor and owner. The main benefit of having these inspections is to identify defects earlier in the build process to avoid additional work by the builder and unnecessary holding costs.
