Home Buyers Pre-Purchase Home Inspections in Vancouver

Buying a home is probably the biggest investment you will ever make. A pre-inspection gives you the facts about the home before you buy.

We are a member of CAHPI(BC) and our reports meet their requirements allowing you to make an informed decision. Sometimes the best surprise is no surprise!

Our Inspections Include:
  • General safety and security
  • All rooms in the interior living space
  • Building envelope, framing, structure
  • Siding and soffits
  • Doors and windows
  • Foundations and crawl spaces
  • Attics and garages
  • Chimneys
  • Walkways, patios, decks, driveways
  • Perimeter drainage
We also test mechanical systems:
  • Electrical service
  • Plumbing and hot water supply
  • Heating equipment (HVAC)
  • Fireplaces
  • Custom installations, such as saunas or hot tubs
For condos and townhouses we:
  • Review of strata council minutes to identify possible problem areas and assess maintenance schedules
  • Inspection of all accessible common areas
  • Visual inspection of the common mechanical systems such as life safety systems
  • General overview of roof and building envelope

Many home buyers believe that it is the role of government regulatory authorities to ensure that new buildings are properly constructed and that older buildings meet current standards. This is simply not the case. Building codes are designed to ensure that buildings meet health and safety standards. Even in the rare jurisdiction where they are vigourously enforced, these regulations do not guarantee overall construction quality. Plumbing, wiring and roofing may not have been inspected thoroughly or at the right stage of construction. Design, workmanship, finishes, landscaping and driveways are all areas which are not covered by regulations, and are often the focus of complaints by new home owners. Any one of these, or a host of other elements, could cost you an arm and a leg.

quote-marks-left.jpgThe prelisting inspection that Home Sweet Home Inspections provided for my Seller was very helpful in securing a fast sale for both parties. The report was very thorough and provided the buyer with a clear picture of the homes condition along with recommendations for future repairs. It was written in an neutral, professional and knowledgeable manner. Both Seller and Buyer were very satisfied with the ease of the transaction because the condition of the home was presented up front, eliminating the stressful renegotiation process that sometimes comes up after an inspection. Thanks Chris.quote-marks-right.jpg

quote-marks-left.jpgThank you for this report, it's absolutely fantastic. Much more thorough than I thought it would be. The recommendations you've made are great and if I'm the lucky new owner, they will be implemented! I'm putting the offer in this afternoon, so we all have our fingers crossed. Thanks once again for coming on such short notice, I really appreciated it.quote-marks-right.jpg
