Questions and Answers:

What is an Ottawa home inspection?
An Ottawa home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.

What does an Ottawa home inspection include?
The standard Ottawa home inspection include a report that covers the condition of the home's heating system; central air conditioning system ( if temperature allows); interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors windows and doors; the foundation, basement and structural components.

Can a house fail an inspection?
Not really, a professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house. It is also not an appraisal which determines market value. It is not a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance. A home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what components and systems may need major repair or replacement.

How much does it cost?
Our inspection's cost are very competitive with the market. The inspection fee for a typical one-family house varies geographically, as does the cost of housing. Similarly, within a given area, the inspection fee may vary depending on a number of factors such as size of the house, its age. Do not let cost be a factor in deciding whether or not to have an Ottawa home inspection or in the selection of your home inspector. The sense of security and knowledge gained from an inspection is well worth the cost, and the lowest-priced inspection is not necessarily a bargain. Ensure your inspector is a member of a professional affiliation such as the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors.

What if the report reveals problems?
No house is perfect. If the inspector identifies problems, it doesn't mean you should or shouldn't purchase the house, it means that you will know in advance what to expect. If major problems are found, a seller may agree to make repairs or adjust their selling price.

If the house proves to be in good condition, do I really need an inspection? Absolutely, now you can complete your home purchase with confidence. You will have learned many things about your new home from the inspector's written report, and will have that information for future reference.

Do I have to be there? While it's not required that you be present during the inspection, it is highly recommended. You will be able to observe the inspector and ask questions as you learn about the condition of the home and how to maintain it.

A pre-Listing Inspection prevents unpleasant surprises for vendors who are planning to sell their home. A Pre-sale Inspection Report makes your home more attractive to buyers and may prevent bad surprises that may kill the deal at the last minute. Since most purchasers today will have their own inspections performed, your upfront knowledge about the condition of your home will help prevent deal killers or amendments to the selling price.

If deficiencies are found during a Pre-Listing Inspection, this will give you a chance to either make the repairs, or price accordingly with the work that is required. Eliminate potential deal killers with unforeseen deficiencies or repairs.
