Before we hand you the keys to your new home, you will have your PCI. A Practical Completion Inspection (PCI) is when you and your supervisor walk through your home. Because your home is over 90% complete, you will be able to look at the finishing touches and advise your supervisor if there are any issues that need to be fixed.
After your PCI, your supervisor will arrange for any items to be fixed and the final pieces to be finished. This includes removing protective equipment and cleaning the house. Any issues are rectified within 2 weeks so we can arrange your Handover Inspection and hand you the keys!
