Quality Homes - A Homeowners Guide

Buying a new home is a big investment. However, a new homeowner may not have the knowledge and experience to assess the quality of a home. This guide aims to bridge this knowledge gap and help homeowners understand what to look out for when making a purchase or receiving a unit during handover.

It covers:

  • Quality standards used by BCA's Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS®)
  • Workmanship standards for architectural finishes such as walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows and mechanical/electrical fittings, as well as components like wardrobes, kitchens and cabinets
  • Recommended materials and designs which generally result in high quality workmanship
  • Quality assurance for units which have attained the BCA Quality Mark (QM) for Good Workmanship and/or have high CONQUAS® scores
  • Courses of action for resolving disputes, between a buyer and developer, regarding quality or defects
