Snag & Inspect Services
As your designated representative, our experienced Alpha Real Estate manager will conduct the inspection considering all the necessary points and communicate all the issues found with the developer directly. By carrying out a pre-handover inspection we can fix minor and major issues.
A superficial property handover, often done by the developer, can be disastrous. The developer may miss critical aspects that need correcting while the owner feeling rushed through the inspection process will miss a lot of things. Having an impartial and expert third part is the key to having a fully ready property. Here is where we come in. Our job is to assist the property owner to ensure that his property will be handed over in the best condition.
With Alpha Real Estate you can relax. Our skilled and fully trained property managers check each property by following an extensive checklist. They will identify all the potential issues that need to be repaired before the handover is completed. Those corrections should be done before the moving into the property. Our expert team will document everything and provide you with all the paperwork. Our interior and exterior inspections include a wide array of different elements being checked around the property.
