1. BUYER'S HOME INSPECTION:
Buyer’s inspections are the most common type of inspection
in Canada. The persons purchasing the property hire an inspector to help
identify major defects and other problems so they can make an informed decision
about the building's condition and the expense of related repairs.
2. SELLER'S HOME INSPECTION:
A homeowner who is selling their house hires an inspector to
identify problems with their house. The seller can elect to share the report
with any potential buyers or to make any necessary repairs so the house is
known to be in good condition encouraging a quick sale. One home inspectors'
organization offers a program which helps market a house as "Move-In
Certified", that is, the house is in a condition where the new owners can
promptly move in without making substantial repairs.
3. PRE-WARRANTY EXPIRATION INSPECTION:
Pre-warranty expiration inspections are performed the month
before your new home's warranty expires. Even if you don't detect any issues
with your home after 1 year, you should still hire an inspector to evaluate the
overall condition of your home.
4. OPEN HOUSE INSPECTION:
In cases of multiple offers in a competitive buyers’ market
where inspection may not be part of the selling condition, we can accompany you
to an open house to give you a quick and on-site inspection that will help you
know what you are bidding on.
5. CONDOMINIUM INSPECTION:
Condominium suite inspections are a limited subset of a
standard home inspection, and typically include the electrical system, heating
and air conditioning, plumbing, window and door operation, and functional
condition of finishes. The right inspector will examine all of the interior
systems of the suite and provide a detailed report which will help you predict
and anticipate your future maintenance costs and may uncover deficiencies which
may lead you to renegotiate your purchase price before going firm.
6. MAINTENANCE INSPECTION:
A maintenance inspection is essentially the same as a
standard home inspection, but the inspection is done for the current owner.
