Handover of brand new property

Hi Guys,

Just wanted your thoughts of things to check on the day of handover. Here is a list of things I would check.

-paint defects (internal & external).
-everything on your contract is installed (phone points, power points, tv points, heating & cooling points)
-check power points are functioning.
-check all lights work.
-check appliances, oven, rangehood, hot water, heating, cooling.
-opening and closing of doors & windows.
-check external guttering.

Is there anything else that you would check?
 
Just quickly. If your comfortable in doing a defect inspection, great, if not get someone in to do a handover inspection.

Other than looking at everything make sure you get ALL the certificates for the property.

I'm not going to list them all as its bed time.

I would arrange for a professional to work their wayt through it but you could also add to your list:

- Check that the top and bottom of all doors are painted and close properly
- No glazing is scratched
- All locks have keys and they are working
- All walls are plumb
- All rubbish from external removed
