The buyer’s home inspector
Our goal is to assist in the process of home buying or selling. We ensure that you are aware of the condition and deficiencies of the building. During a Meredith Home Inspection on-site service, home buyers, sellers and brokers gain a clear understanding of what requires replacement or repair. Our approach, is to inspect system by system with you at our side so that you attest to the condition of each element. Our visual inspection is a process that can require an hour or two more than other inspection firms. But it provides what you want to know, given that you are about to acquire or sell the biggest investment and liability of your life. Rest assured that we won’t rush through the inspection. So if, for any reason, the inspection takes longer than expected, that’s not a problem. We don’t have to dash off as we only complete one full inspection per day. After all, we don’t want you to be left with a bad taste in your mouth 2 to 3 years down the road.
A demanding Meredith inspection doesn’t begin or end with the on-site visit. Before the inspection, we prepare by reviewing relevant and available building documentation, establish your family’s requirements and evaluate and determine if certain Specialist Inspections would be useful. Oh, and comprehension is not an issue as we are fluently bilingual. We review the findings over the phone or Skype once you have received our PDF report which is written using Carson Dunlop’s Horizon industry-leading software. The information provided in the report is practical and lets you know what major and minor repairs are to be done and when. Typically, our report includes over 50 photos and numerous illustrations.
L’inspecteur en bâtiment de l’acheteur
Un inspecteur en bâtiment est l’œil qualifié qui peut voir au-delà des magnifiques finitions à l’intérieur et de la mise en valeur de la propriété (« home staging »). J’ai vu des résidences tout à fait magnifiques à l’intérieur, alors que le bâtiment lui-même présentait des problèmes majeurs de structure. plus >>
