I am finalizing a building contract (3 units Geelong) and am conflicted on building inspections. There are advantages to having building inspections done by developer. From developer's perspective it might result in delay in payments and loss of some control. However since this is my first association with this builder and I would be more comfortable organizing an inspector myself. It also helps me maintain better control since I am located interstate. Would appreciate various opinions (contract clauses, no of inspections) either way. Other inputs into interstate management of project would also be extremely helpful and welcome. Many thanks for the feedback.
