Handover

Handover - How it Works


What do I need to do before handover?
  • As we approached completion of your home, we will have issued you with a handover date. This is the date that Camelot Homes will complete construction of your home and all inspections by the PCA have been completed.
  • You will need to arrange your Home and Contents Insurance policy to commence from the handover date.
What’s an Occupation Certificate?
  • This is a certificate issue by Principal Certifying Authority (PCA).
  • Basically states that the home is fit for occupation and everything is completed as per the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
When can we move in?
  • Handover date for your home is not the date to arrange a removalist truck.  Due to Council and bank requirements that are beyond our control, occupation may be delayed.
  • We recommend that you book the removalist truck for the following week after handover.
  • The actual handover will take place in the afternoon of the nominated day. We always try to arrange it for a Friday, usually around 2.00pm. The handover will take about 2-3 hours to complete.
How do I know how things work?
  • You will be familiarised with how things work in the home and be provided with warranty information. We will also discuss critical dates to remember, such as annual termite inspections and air-conditioning service, and homeowner responsibilities that you will need to know about.
  • We will also issue you with a Home Owner’s Manual which will give you an understanding of what to expect from your home in the years to come and more importantly what you need to do to maintain it.
  • We will also provide you with all the certificates of works completed in the home and we will provide you with the Final Occupation Certificate issued by the PCA.
What is the maintenance period of the home?
  • Structurally, there is a five-year warranty for the home which covers any structural faults that may occur.
  • At 90 days you submit a maintenance list of ‘touch-ups’ that might be required. This list will be to address items such as settlement cracks, sticking hinges or perhaps a dripping washer. These are non-structural items that may have come to your attention in the first 90 days of occupation.
