Building your dream home is an exciting milestone in life, but it’s also a significant financial commitment. Unfortunately, in recent years, many builders in Perth, Western Australia, have faced immense pressure due to fixed-price contracts, resulting in some being forced into liquidation and closure. This unfortunate situation can leave homeowners in limbo, facing an uncertain and arduous process to complete their homes. At Bestwest Building Inspections, we understand the importance of safeguarding your investment, and our Construction Progress Inspections offer a valuable solution to ensure transparency and protect your interests throughout the construction journey.

The Challenge of Fixed Price Contracts:

Fixed-price contracts have been a common approach in the construction industry, offering a level of certainty to both builders and homeowners. However, these contracts have their challenges, particularly when builders encounter unforeseen cost overruns or other financial pressures. When builders face financial strain, it can lead to delays, subpar workmanship, and even the unfortunate closure of their business.

The Aftermath for Homeowners:

For homeowners, the closure of a builder’s business can be a nightmare scenario. You might find yourself with an incomplete home, unsure of the actual progress made and the quality of the work done. Picking up the pieces and finding another builder to finish the project can be time-consuming, stressful, and costly. Without proper insights into the construction progress, homeowners can feel left in the dark and vulnerable to making uninformed decisions.
