Other Considerations 

Structural Integrity 

The report evaluates the overall structural integrity of the building, including the foundation, walls, roof, and any supporting structures. It checks for signs of cracks, settlement, or other issues that may affect the stability of the property. 

Building Regulations Compliance 

The inspector assesses whether the construction meets the relevant building regulations and standards. This includes examining elements such as fire safety measures, insulation, ventilation, electrical installations, plumbing, and drainage systems. 

Finishes and Workmanship 

The report examines the quality of the finishes and workmanship throughout the property. This includes inspecting the quality of materials used, the installation of windows and doors, the condition of flooring, tiling, and the overall aesthetic appeal of the property. 

Snagging List 

The inspector prepares a snagging list, which identifies any defects, incomplete work, or cosmetic issues that need to be addressed by the builder. This may include issues like uneven paintwork, missing or damaged fixtures, or improperly fitted components. 

External Areas 

The inspection extends to the external areas of the property, examining the condition of external walls, roofing, guttering, driveways, pathways, fencing, and landscaping. Drainage systems and the integration of the property with the surrounding environment are also assessed. 

Warranty Information 

The inspection report may include details about the warranty or guarantee provided by the builder or developer, outlining the coverage, duration, and terms of the warranty. 
It's important to note that inspection reports may vary depending on the specific requirements of the client, the type of property, and the inspector's expertise. Hiring a qualified and reputable professional for the inspection is crucial to ensure a thorough evaluation of the new build home.
