Handing over a newly constructed home involves several important steps to ensure that the project is completed to the client's satisfaction. Here's a checklist for the construction home handover process:

1. Final Inspection:

  • Walk through the entire property with the client to inspect every aspect of the construction.

  • Check for any visible defects, unfinished work, or areas that need improvement.

2. Keys and Access:

  • Provide the client with keys, access codes, and any necessary instructions for security systems, gates, or electronic locks.

3. Manuals and Instructions:

  • Hand over instruction manuals for appliances, HVAC systems, plumbing, and electrical systems.

  • Explain how to operate and maintain these systems.

4. Warranty Information:

  • Provide the client with information about warranties for different components of the home, such as roofing, appliances, and structural elements.

  • Explain the terms and conditions of these warranties.

5. Maintenance Recommendations:

  • Offer recommendations for ongoing maintenance, including regular inspections, cleaning, and any specific care instructions for materials or finishes.

6. Final Walkthrough:

  • Walk the client through the property one last time to ensure all concerns have been addressed.

  • Discuss any remaining items on the punch list and establish a timeline for their completion.

7. Utilities and Services:

  • Ensure that all utilities (water, electricity, gas) are connected and functioning correctly.

  • Provide information on service providers and contact details.

8. Exterior and Landscaping:

  • Ensure the landscaping is complete, and all outdoor areas are tidy and safe.

  • Discuss any maintenance requirements for the landscaping.

9. Inspections and Certifications:

  • Provide copies of all relevant inspection reports and certificates for structural integrity, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems.

10. Cleaning and Presentation:

  • Ensure the home is clean and presentable for the client's move-in.

  • Remove construction debris, dust, and any leftover materials.

11. Defects and Repairs:

  • Address any defects or issues that were identified during the inspection, and document the agreed-upon resolution.

12. Payment and Final Documentation:

  • Confirm that all financial matters are settled, and the client has made the final payment.

  • Provide the client with copies of all invoices, receipts, and financial records related to the project.

13. Handover Certificate:

  • Sign a formal handover certificate, indicating that the client has received the property in the agreed-upon condition.

14. Client's Feedback:
