The RIBA Plan of Work published by the RIBA in 2020 defines the defects list as: ‘A list of items that do not comply with the requirements of the Building Contract when the Practical Completion certificate is issued.’
It suggests that: ‘A building should be free of defects when it is handed over. However, the majority of clients do not wish minor defects to delay handover and it is therefore common for a Defects List to be appended to the Practical Completion certificate to allow the building to be used. These defects are rectified as quickly as possible during Stage 6 (handover).’
