It is very important to have a professional and complete home inspection performed by a qualified home inspector. The qualifications and thoroughness of home inspectors varies considerably due to their experience and knowledge of the construction industry.
A HomeSpecs report will identify material defects in the systems, structures, and components of the building as they exist at the time of inspection. The specific systems, structures and components of a building to be examined are listed in the CREIA Standards of Practice.
The majority of items found during the home inspection can be repaired or replaced sometimes at no cost to the buyer. This can often result in a savings greater than the cost of the home inspection.
We encourage the buyer to be present at the home inspection so that any observations can be identified in person. This also enables the buyer to become more familiar with the property and its systems.
Unlike larger home inspection companies who use several inspectors, secretaries, scheduling agents, Homespecs is a sole ownership and the owner Neil Ray performs all home inspections.
Every client is treated with a personalized service that is second to none. All inspections are scheduled by Neil and inspections per day are limited to enable adequate time on site with our clients.
Our priority is to ensure that all questions are answered and to help the client understand the condition of the property and its systems. Neil is available to answer questions by phone or email 7 days a week and evenings, and calls are usually returned within a few hours.
One of our goals is to help prevent unforeseen conditions that often arise either during or after the purchase. This helps to provide peace of mind for everyone involved in the transaction and can help prevent any potential lawsuits.
