Progress Stage Inspections For Peace of Mind

Ensure the quality of your home from the ground up, with our experienced and licenced inspector overseeing your property at each stage of construction.

You can save significant rectification delays by identifying any problems as they arise, reducing the risk of defects being covered over and concealed by later stage construction works.

Put your mind at ease with Handover Hero progress stage inspections, designed to identify defects at four key progress stages:

  • Slab (Post-Pour) – the days following slab pour before the frame installation.
  • Frame Pre-Linings – windows and rough-ins completed, including plumbing, electrical, and air-conditioning but prior to wall linings installation.
  • Enclosed/Lockup – brickwork, roof and external wall linings complete.
  • Fixing – timber fixings, doors, cabinetry and wet area tiling complete but before painting.

Our licenced Builder and Inspector will complete a thorough inspection of your property at each Progress Stage, identifying defects in line with the QBCC Standards and Tolerances. We can confirm whether items from the previous Stage Inspection have been rectified wherever possible at the following inspection.

If you are not present at the time, we will call you on completion and outline our findings.


We email you (and your Builder if you provide their email address) a comprehensive report outlining all defects found. The report includes detailed photos of each item and references the QBCC Standards and Tolerances to help avoid disputes.

We’re available if you have any questions after reading through your report.


We will keep in touch to schedule your next Progress Stage Inspection at the appropriate time.
