What to expect from your home inspection.
Purchasing a home is a large investment for many Canadians. As such, it is important to familiarize yourself with all of the activities related to buying a house so that you are able to make an informed choice. Many people have their home inspected as part of the home buying process. By having your inspection performed by a TICAD professional, you will receive the valuable information you require to aid you in making a sound and educated home buying decision!
What should you expect from a TICAD Residential Home Inspection?
A typical home inspection takes three to four hours to complete depending on the size and complexity of your home. The inspection is a non-intrusive, visual inspection, meaning the systems and components of the home will be observed for their correct function and operability. Your TICAD inspector is not expected to displace flooring and tiling, or check water or air samples. We cannot look through walls, predict future performance, or estimate life spans on a home.
What happens when the inspection is complete?
When your inspector has completed the examination of your home he will immediately go over the summary of his findings with you. You will receive a full colour digital copy of the report which describes and outlines the details from the inspection in full. It is advised that you read the entire contents of your report and not just the summary page. When you have questions it is very important that you speak with your inspector to clarify his findings prior to closing!
Your TICAD report will describe the major home systems, their crucial components, and their operability. Defects will be adequately described, and the report will include recommendations. Your report will also disclaim portions of the home not inspected, if any.
