Hometrust’s QAS is a scheme which aims to safeguard consumer interests when it comes to workmanship and built quality. Through providing free third-party inspections, consumers and their interior designers are able to get an objective assessment on work defects and follow up on expert recommendations to ensure their renovation project is in top condition before handover.
No, QAS is absolutely free! Simply apply for QAS once you have already signed up with a Quality Assured Designer. Hometrust will then make arrangements with your interior designer for the inspection close to the end of your renovation process. It’s that simple!
Quality Assured Designers are interior designer companies which have agreed to allow third-party defect inspections on their renovation projects, as well as to follow up with the necessary rectifications before handover of the project. Quality Assured Designers understand that delivering satisfactory built quality is the priority of QAS, and will respect the findings and recommendations of the inspection report.
The defect inspections will be conducted according to BCA Conquas standards by a third-party professional defect inspector. The inspections will identify defects and unacceptable workmanship finishes within the architectural, mechanical (plumbing) and electrical systems. Following the inspection, an assessment report will be delivered to you and your interior designer. The inspector will then use the report to initiate the rectification process to ensure rectification works have been completed satisfactorily according to BCA standards before handover.
