How to Prepare for PCI

Preparing for Practical Completion

Think of the Practical Completion Inspection (PCI) as the grand reveal of your dream space. This is the opportunity to communicate any issues, ensuring the home meets the standards and specifications outlined in your Building Contract. As you get ready for PCI, there’s a whole lot to look forward to beyond just ticking boxes.

Contact your lender

You will receive an invitation from your Builder to attend your Practical Completion Inspection, marking an exciting chapter. If you are attaining finance, it’s also the time to provide authorisation to your lender to release funds to the Builder. This process will then trigger the bank to organise and secure a bank valuation at the property. By doing so at this early stage, you’ll be reducing any chance of delays.

It’s time for a tour

PCI-1

Picture this as your own MTV Cribs tour! Your Supervisor becomes the guide, walking you through your new space, flagging any tweaks needed and will subsequently undertake the listed items before PCI-2.

PCI-2

This is a milestone step in the PCI journey, where you complete your final walkthrough and sign off on the completed remedial works.

Key Handover

Once your Builder has received confirmation of payment from your lender, a date can be set for key handover. This is a day of celebration, as we welcome you into our state-of-the-art showroom in Osborne Park to handover the keys to your new home! Your Supervisor and our entire team take great pride in their work and handing over your home is a significant milestone for all involved.

6-Month Maintenance

As you settle into your new home, you may notice additional items which require attention. The 6-month maintenance review is all about ensuring every detail is just as you dreamed. In preparation, you’ll need to lodge any service maintenance defect items via your client portal prior to your 6 month due date.

Once received, a member of the Service Department will be in touch to arrange an inspection if required. Congratulations on achieving an incredible milestone!
