Inspections operate based on triggers. These triggers give builders X days to submit their inspections on the lot after the deposits have been received.
When the inspection is first ready to be submitted, a Initial Inspection Pending message is sent to the assigned builder's site supervisor.
Some developers approve these inspections once they're completed, but all systems move the inspections to Initial Inspection Missed once the inspection period has passed.
A warning email is sent 48 hours prior to the inspection period expiring. The inspection period varies from developer to developer but is typically in the range of 21-28 days.
What happens now?
Once missed, only the developer can reset these inspections back to Initial Inspection Pending. Lots with no issues may choose not to submit their inspections, and the developer will treat all other missed inspections as also having no issues to report.
For developers, please see "How do I reset an inspection?"
How to Stop Expiries
Site Supervisors should regularly log into LotWorks to review their pending and active lists of inspections to ensure no issues arise in the future.
A developer may seasonably disable inspections from expiring. This is done under Options > Admin. Please review the available options under the Initial Inspections heading for controls related to the inspection process.
