What to expect from your inspection ?

Overview

A home inspection is part of the path to making a more informed home purchase decision. It is intended to provide peace of mind by offering a technical review of the home. This review usually entails a visual inspection of the major systems and their components, as defined in the current Standards of Practice. A home inspection can help you gain a better understanding of the home, but it is not magic. It is a snapshot of the condition of the home today. Things can, and do, change and a home inspection will not stop those changes from occurring. You are advised to read and understand the written report before you make your final purchase decision.

  1. VISUAL INSPECTION: The inspection is a visual inspection only of the readily accessible features of the Property. The report to be provided to the Client documents the inspector’s examination of the Property based on that visual inspection. The inspector will not conduct any invasive or destructive testing of the Property. Your inspector will not be able to report on the homes hidden defects due to the limitations of a visual inspection.
  2. STANDARDS OF PRACTICE: The inspection will be performed in accordance with industry accepted Standards of Practice. The Client acknowledges having had the opportunity to obtain, review and understands the Standards of Practice.
  3. INSPECTION LIMITATIONS: The inspection is not technically exhaustive and all encompassing. The client acknowledges that, as a result of the limitations of a visual inspection, some detectable deficiencies may go unnoted in the inspection report. The client accepts these limitations. The inspector is a generalist, not a specialist in all disciplines, and may refer the client to specialist(s) for further evaluation of certain items. The Client acknowledges that there may be problems with the Property which will not be apparent from a visual inspection.
  4. NOT BUILDING CODE OR BY-LAW COMPLIANCE INSPECTION: The inspection to be completed is not a Building Code or By-Law compliance inspection. The Client acknowledges that it may be necessary to confer directly with authorities to confirm whether the Property meets Building Code or By-Law requirements.
  5. MAJOR PROBLEMS: The goal of the inspection is to identify existing major problems that are apparent on a visual inspection of the property. A listing of minor building flaws or minor repairs and maintenance items will be provided as a courtesy, at the inspector’s discretion.
  6. COST ESTIMATES: Cost Estimates may be provided during the inspection or in the Report and are intended to be guideline figures only. They are based on the most cost effective solution to address the problem and will not include betterment. It is recommended that the client obtain at least three cost estimates from qualified specialists before finalizing budgets for any work and the inspector is not responsible for any difference in cost of replacement or repair.
  7. ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS: The inspection will NOT confirm any environmental concerns including, but not limited to: UFFI, air quality, water quality/quantity, sealed/underground fuel storage tanks, asbestos, radon gas, molds, toxins, carcinogens etc. The inspection or report will also NOT confirm infestation by wood boring insects, rodents or other vermin. The inspector will make all attempts to identify the items as noted and the client acknowledges that it may be necessary for the client to retain specialists in such areas to identify and evaluate these types of risks.
  8. NO GUARANTEES OR ASSUMPTION OF RISK: A home inspection is an information service. As such, the inspection and the inspection report are not a guarantee, warranty or insurance policy regarding the physical state of the Property or the current or future adequacy, performance or condition of the property. The inspector will not assume any risk in connection with this home's condition, deficiencies, performance, or lack thereof. Legal liability is limited in amount to the fee paid for this inspection. The inspector/inspection firm reserves the right to review/inspect any items that may be the subject of a dispute prior to any repairs/alterations being made.
