Builder (Maintenance) Liability Period Reports.
You have moved in your new home and now the builder’s maintenance liability period is approaching, it is at this time the builder attends and carries out any defects under their liability and warranties.
So how do you compile the list? Can you access and identify all the items that need attention? Will the builder listen and take notice of your identified items?
With a Housecalls Builder Liability Maintenance Report you have the backing of a professional written report clearly identifying and listing any items that require attention, (each of our inspectors have 40yrs + experience in residential building). These would include any unfinished and/or defects within the roof void not identified at the previous builders handover, (roof voids are often the most neglected and problematic area when it comes to completion of work to NCC standards), the builder has an obligation to rectify any work that does not comply with the NCC (formally BCA) building codes.
The Housecalls team are here to help you with this vital period, items left undetected and unattended too now will often remain so, these may not be picked up until the time comes when you are selling on. By this time it can be difficult and time consuming to get any rectification works carried out by the builder or under their insurances, should they no longer be available. This may delay process times or may involve you with unnecessary costs.
