17. Each building covered by a guarantee shall be inspected before it is accepted. The contractor and the beneficiary shall carry out the inspection together, using a pre-established list of items to be checked. Such list shall be supplied by the manager and shall be adapted to the class of building concerned. The beneficiary may be assisted by a person of his choice.
During the inspection, the beneficiary and the contractor identify the work that remains to be completed and the apparent defects and poor workmanship to be corrected. The beneficiary and the contractor agree during that inspection on a period that may not exceed 6 months for the performance of the completion and corrective work.
Where there is no known beneficiary at the end of the work, the inspection must be deferred.
