We strongly feel that a Home Inspection, done by a BCIPI certified home inspector is an essential part of buying any home.
A home inspector protects you by identifying problems with major systems in a home, townhouse or condo: foundation and drainage issues, plumbing and electrical, building exterior and roofing. They can also zone in on areas that may be of particular concern for you.
Even for homes and condos that are new or in great repair, they will go over regular maintenance items that when done can save you money and avoid future problems.
A home inspector will provide you with a written report of their findings which you can then use as a basis for a long-term home maintenance plan.
BCIPI Home Inspectors must be 100% independent.
There are a lot of great home inspectors working in the Greater Vancouver area right now. Among our favorite home inspection companies (in alphabetical order):
