After receiving the key from the property developer, the flat owner will hire a building inspector to inspect the new flat. After the inspection, the owner will then submit the inspection report to the developer to arrange rectification. When all rectification works are completed by the developer, we can arrange another inspection to ensure that the works are up to standard.
