Frequently asked questions
What do I need to prepare before the defects inspection?
1. Pass us the key/security access card to your new home prior to the 1st inspection
Do I need to be present for all 3 inspections in your Comprehensive Package?
As the 1st inspection (checking for defects) can take up to 4-5 hours, you do not need to be present the latter so as not to waste your time. You just have to pass us the keys/access card or open the door for us on the day of inspection.
Does LACASA check on the functionality of the electrical appliances, such as, aircon, water heater, washing machine, refrigerators, oven, cooker hood and cooker hob, etc.?
Besides the aircon or Fan Coil Unit (FCU) and Water Heater, we do not test the functionality of the other electrical appliances. We will only switch them on to check whether the appliances are connected to the electrical points.
As compared to the aircon and water heater, it is not feasible to switch on and run the other appliances for a period of time, unless you are really using them.
Once you have moved into your new home, you can raise new defect lists to highlight any faulty appliances during the Defect Liability Period.
When and how do I make payment?
Payment will be collected after Joint Inspection (2nd inspection) with the Developer and Main Contractor.
When can I allow my ID contractor to start work?
It is strongly recommended to NOT start your renovation works before the 3rd inspection or until all major defects have been rectified by the Developer/Main Contractor or until you are satisfied with the rectification works.
