Practical Pre Completion Inspection (PCI) Melbourne
Ensure your building is up to scratch with our pre completion inspection.
Practical Completion Inspections
We have a bunch of very picky inspectors who will not let anything slide when it comes time to complete that all important practical completion inspection (PCI) for your new home.
Have you scheduled your PCI building inspection yet?
You must schedule your pre completion inspection with a professional independent inspector once your builder has advised you that they have completed the contracted works and have addressed all your previous concerns raised during the build.
Don’t fall into the trap of doing the inspection yourself, or believing that your builder warranty will cover any defects, so you don’t need to worry about a professionally completed PCI before your new home is signed off as completed by your builder.
We strongly advise all our clients to make sure that each and every defect is identified, urgently flagged and properly resolved by the builder before taking possession of the property, it is cheaper to have it all fixed before moving in and you avoid having never-ending, expensive and emotionally draining disputes over your new home.
Organise a pre completion inspection with one of our trusted and experienced Melbourne inspectors today.
What does our popular Practical Completion Inspection cover?
During the inspection of your new home our inspectors will:
- Examine every single room of the house
- Check that everything has been built in accordance with the Victorian and National building code
- Clearly note down, photo graph and mark up and all defects and faults
- Provide a detailed comprehensive PCI report of findings and recommendations for your follow up
Why is a PCI building inspection it important?
This will be the last opportunity for you and your family to have one last chance to make sure the builder has done their job.
Certain construction defects such as a leaking roof are difficult and expensive to remediate while you are living in the property and can cause damage to other personal goods. In addition, you want to avoid disputes with the builder relating to the damage that can be incorrectly attributed to occupancy.
While the builder is compelled by law to provide post-occupancy warranties and maintenance guarantees a professionally conducted PCI building inspection is critically important and we recommend that it must not be omitted for your own protection and peace of mind.

How long does a building dilapidation survey take to prepare?
Completing a standard PCI building inspection in Melbourne typically takes 24hrs to prepare after the physical inspection has been completed. While we will probably deliver it quicker than that it’s a good guide to work with.
The key time factor is access to your new home and the most common reason for delays is the availability of the building site supervisor.
