We offer a wide variety of services
to suit your unique needs.
||Ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of
what your house has to offer the market. A Pre-listing Home Inspection
is for people who are selling their home and want to know what to expect.
More and more home sellers are opting to have their house inspected before
a buyer comes along. Pre-listing inspections are gaining momentum in both
soft and hot real estate markets. The idea to have an inspection done at
listing is gaining popularity for all the right reasons. After all, why wait
until there is a real estate contract on the line to find out if there are
any significant defects in the home? In the Lower Mainland and Fraser
Valley of BC, this type of inspection is gaining more momentum as the
value is being realized well before the “for sale” sign hits the front lawn.
Knowing the truth about the condition of your home can not only help you
sell your house for its rightful value, but it can help you be strategic
in pricing, negotiating while working with the buyers.
||Why purchase your dream home without knowing everything about the condition?

New Home Warranty Inspections
||Before you take ownership of your newly constructed home you will
walk through the home with your builder. Along with this step you should
also have your new home inspected by a Certified Home Inspector. Make sure
your newly constructed house is complete and ready to move in to without
causing your family and health problems associated with poorly built homes.
An independent inspection often uncovers defects overlooked by municipal
inspectors and the builder’s inspector, and can help ensure that deficiencies
are corrected under the British Columbia New Home Warranty Program and/or at
the builder’s expense.
Home Warranty Pre-Expiration Inspections
||Now that you have lived in your newly constructed home for some time,
you should have your home inspected by a qualified home inspector in order
to submit any defects or deficiencies to the New Home Warranty Program before
it expires. This inspection should be scheduled to be performed anywhere from
one year or six months prior to warranty expiration. The deficiency list can
then be used to accurately fill out the home builder warranty forms and have
all deficiencies addressed promptly under coverage. Let a Certified Home
Inspector write a comprehensive report for you so you can deal with the Home
Warranty Program professionally and with confidence.
||On-going and proper maintenance of a home's structural
and mechanical systems can be essential to retaining and
increasing the value of a home. Your home has so many systems
that need to work together in order to ensure your health and
safety are preserved. A maintenance inspection involves a thorough
inspection of a home and property every three to five years, which
can yield significant returns in terms of cost savings from untimely
damage. Inspections can identify and monitor certain conditions and
components that may lead to safety hazards for family members and detect
potential problems before they become serious and costly.
The inspection helps the homeowner to be proactive to maintaining
their investment, and not having to be reactive to future unforeseen damage.
Landlord/Tenant Dispute Inspections
||The rental process can be rewarding; but, challenging when things
don’t go well. According to B.C.’s Residential Tenancy Branch, these
inspection reports must be completed at the beginning and end of the
occupancy period. The Residential Tenancy Branch states that “If the
landlord has made the inspection with the tenant but does not complete
the Condition Inspection Report, or provide the tenant with a copy as
required under residential tenancy law, the landlord loses the right
to claim against the security deposit and/or the pet deposit for damages.”
