Knowledge is key to the purchase of any Lower Mainland property and especially when purchasing a strata townhome, there are many items to go over and questions to be asked.
Be informed with an Inside Out Home Inspection – contact us today.
These are just a few of the hundreds of items included in our townhouse inspections:
We Review the History
We encourage you to read the minutes of the strata council meetings, which will review the history of the building, as far back as you can obtain them, and to highlight any areas of concern, such as water or moisture ingress, roofing concerns, plumbing situations, etc., which can be discussed during the inspection. Also, find out if there have been any engineering reports on the building and obtain a copy (your realtor should help to obtain all documents for review). We then will find out if any work was to be done, as mentioned in the reports, and if it was carried out or tabled for a later date. We will find out and look at any past major upgrades which were done to the building, re-plumbing, rain screening, windows, slab or foundation membrane, roofing, etc.
Our inspectors are highly trained in the home inspection industry and are licensed by Consumer Protection BC, members of Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC, British Columbia Institute of Property Inspectors, and the Better Business Bureau of BC.
