Acceptance is a legal act by which you accept the work of the contractor. This is an important step and will mark the starting point for certain coverages in the guarantee plan. Acceptance with a rigorous inspection will be the best way to protect yourself.
The Regulation respecting the Guarantee Plan stipulates that each building must be inspected before acceptance. The inspection must be made in the presence of the buyer and the entrepreneur, based on a list of elements provided by the administrator (https://www.garantiegcr.com/app/uploads/2019/10/exemple_gcr-f130_formulaire-inspection-prrception_10-2019.pdf).
We strongly recommend that a building professional accompany you for your inspection.
Here are the main stages of the inspection:
When the work is not finished, that is to say that there remains work to be completed so that the work conforms to the project, you can, but you are not obliged to, receive the work. If the work needs corrections or these are only minor details to be completed, you can receive the work (with reservations).
