Building is STRESSFUL! Sleep easier knowing that your final handover inspection is being taken care of by professionals. Mention HDM for a priority booking and 15% off your fee.

At the most stressful time of the construction stage, when the deadlines are looming or even overdue, the handover is a major milestone for the project. It is the owner’s acceptance of the building, subject to certain defects being rectified.

The handover inspection documents the status of the building at the point where the project is deemed complete, and the final payment is due. This is when the contract is completed and the defects liability period begins.This is a big deal!

This is where Your Red Pen comes in.

Your Red Pen offers a professional handover inspection and creates a thorough report for you, as the owner, to present to the builder.
