Home Inspections

Purchasing a home is the largest investment most of us will make. This process requires the expert assistance of an experienced Realtor® and a qualified registered home inspector. The Canadian Association of Home & Property Inspectors (CAHPI) has established the most widely recognized standard of quality for home inspections nationwide.

A qualified Registered Home Inspector will examine the home's major systems including...

   Electrical

   Plumbing

   Heating

   Roofing

   Foundation

   Interior & Exterior

The home inspector will not make the buying decision for you. An inspector can provide you with the information you need to help make that decision wisely.

You will benefit most from your inspection if you can be at the house during the inspection. The home inspection is the perfect opportunity to become familiar with the house. Do not hesitate to ask questions. A good inspector will be glad to take the time to explain proper maintenance and operating procedures for many of the building components.

When choosing your inspector, be sure to ask about experience and professional qualifications.

Home inspection is a unique discipline requiring special training, knowledge, and communication skills that differ substantially from those of other building professions. Non affiliated home inspectors are generalist with a comprehensive knowledge on many systems. Membership in a CAHPI provincial organization assures that a professional home inspector has demonstrated the ability to meet or exceed the CAHPI standards of practice .

What does this mean for you?

Peace of mind and more protection for you. You can be assured when you hire a member of a CAHPI provincial/regional organization to inspect your home, you are hiring a professional with proven ability, experience and impartiality.
