A Home Inspector will provide a report outlining items of concern before the house is listed or before you buy a home.

5 Types of Home Inspections
A Home Inspection is a visual examination of readily accessible systems in your house. It is intended to identify areas that are significantly deficient, unsafe, or near the end of their useful life.
Pre-Purchase Inspections are the most common type of inspection in Canada.
Home buyers purchasing a property hire qualified Home Inspectors to help identify major defects and other problems so they can make an informed decision about the home’s condition in an effort to minimize or eliminate potentially large and unexpected expenses.
Pre-Listing (Seller’s) Inspection
Homeowners selling their house should hire a Home Inspector to identify problems in advance. The seller may 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 quicker sale.
New Home (Pre-Delivery) Inspection
Inspect your newly constructed home before closing to ensure that it is substantially completed. Along with a representative of the builder, it is your right to be accompanied by a qualified Home Inspector. Any noted defects will be listed in our report, so that you can ensure that they are taken care of prior to closing.
You may choose to have a follow-up inspection to ensure that the list of items has been completed.
New Home Warranty Inspection
Before your new home warranty expires, hire a Home Inspector to prepare an inspection report so that any claims can be made before your warranty runs out and it is too late.
Are you having work done at your house or perhaps a major renovation? A Home Inspector can help take some of the stress out the process by reviewing the scope of the project and helping to ensure that your contractor delivers what was promised.
