The Home Inspector acts as your extra pair of eyes, able to see things about a property that may not be visible to you.
If you are buying a resale home, it’s always advisable to have it checked by a Home Inspector as a condition of purchase. This individual (not requiring provincial licensing in most cases) will inspect the property for major deficiencies, which may not always be apparent. The results are presented in a written Home Inspection Report.
The Home Inspector:
- Identifies the soundness of the structure and any improvements that have been made
- Notes any specific deficiencies and their impact on the value of the property.
- Estimates the cost to correct any identified deficiencies
