1. What is the price of a building inspection?


Prices vary depending on the type of building and their size: a condominium will cost less to inspect than a house, or a block apartment (multiplex), or a house type bungalow will cost less than one floor. The price will also be according to the complexity of the elements to be inspected; like a central heating that will be more complex than an electric baseboard heater. Attention, the price is not everything, because in principle the price of the building inspection is very largely reimbursed by the decrease of the purchase price.

2. Should we be present during the building inspection?


It is strongly recommended to be present during the building inspection, to have the opportunity to ask all the questions to the building inspector, which will give you a better understanding of the condition of the building. Indeed, even if the report is very precise and rich of remarks, the visit with the building inspector will give you a more accurate idea of ​​the state of things, that the only reading of the report will not bring you. During the building inspection, the building inspectors will also offer valuable advice on the maintenance of the building, and will reassure you and advise you precisely on issues that are more important to you than others.

3. What are the risks if I do not have my future condo, my future home, or my future multiplex inspected?


The building inspection report shows the condition of the building at the time of purchase, and allows negotiation before the conclusion of the sale. Without such a document it will be extremely difficult after the transaction to prove anything about the condition of the building prior to its purchase, and to bring an action against the seller. The judge may not even hold the other party responsible and blame you for not having your home inspected.

4. What is the benefit of filming the building inspection?


Damage may occur between the building inspection and the signing of the sale. Such new damage will be absent from the report because occurred after the visit of the building inspector. The salesmen can scrupulously claim that the damage was already there, that the building inspector will not have seen this damage, and that the new owners have nothing to ask them! Similarly, buyers may be scrupulous, might try to claim that new damage occurred after a sale, were made by the former owners and that the seller's inspection report excluded these facts dishonestly, thereby claiming compensation from this damage to the old owners.

5. Is a building inspection done according to building code standards?


No, because the pre-purchase building inspection is not an inspection of compliance with codes or standards. If we look at all the elements according to the different codes and standards, it would be expensive and would last more than a week.
