Final Report

What is a Final Report?

A Final Report is an inexpensive way of ensuring new building work is up to scratch. The Report will identify:
  • items which are unfinished (incomplete work), which often includes numerous minor issues;
  • problems which need fixing (defective work); and
  • certification that we recommend you ask the building contractor to give you. This Certification is proof that major parts of the work have been properly inspected by people qualified to do so - for instance a termite protection, waterproofing, lift or air-conditioning systems.

Who does it?

Building Consultants that train to objectively focus on whether irregular work is a cause for concern.

When should a Final Report be prepared?

A Final Report should be prepared and reviewed before making final payment to the building contractor. Once the building contractor claims the work is practically complete; most building contracts include a period of time for an Inspection to be conducted and a Final Report prepared. After which the contract usually allows for a period where the building contractor repairs and completes what is required.

In our experience most builders favour a Final Report by independent party being prepared so they can address problems before you take possession.

Why should I have a Final Report prepared?

Tyrrells does not recommend unfairly withholding payments from builders. However, we are convinced that the best way to get the quality of the work you are paying for is to:
  • obtain a Final Report PRIOR to payment of final claim
  • obtain advice about any other issue of concern such as variations and extras
  • delay making your final payment to the building contractor until all work is completed satisfactorily.
