Why do I need a home inspection?

A home inspection is a crucial step in the home buying or selling process that can help protect both parties involved in the transaction. Here are some reasons why you may need a home inspection:

Identify potential issues

A home inspection can uncover potential issues with the property that you may not have noticed during a walkthrough. This can include problems with the foundation, plumbing, electrical systems, or roof.

Evaluate the condition of the property

A home inspection can help you evaluate the overall condition of the property and determine whether any repairs or renovations are needed. This can help you make an informed decision about the purchase or sale of the property.

Negotiate repairs

If the home inspection reveals any issues, you may be able to negotiate with the seller to have them repaired before the sale is final. This can save you money and help ensure that the property is in good condition before you take ownership.

Avoid surprises

A home inspection can help you avoid surprises after you move in. By identifying any potential issues before the sale is final, you can take steps to address them before they become major problems.

Overall, a home inspection is an important investment that can help you make an informed decision about a property and protect your interests in the transaction.

When do I need a home inspection?

PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION

An inspection is a vital step before purchasing a property. People do not realize how many relevant details are overlooked when house shopping. My detailed digital report will describe the probable repairs that will need to be made, as well as any potential safety concerns . In addition, the report contains a comprehensive homeowner’s reference library of documents that will help you understand how your home works, priorities to take care of when moving into your home and a suggested maintenance program to help protect your investment.

PRE-LISTING INSPECTION

The majority of prospective home purchasers use the services of a home inspector. Any major issues that arise can be used in negotiations with the seller or help steer them away from a risky purchase. I offer pre-listing inspections to make sure you are aware of any pertinent issues before you put your home on the market. This allows you to either remedy them before you sell, or obtain contractor estimates before negotiation with prospective purchasers, possibly saving you time and thousands of dollars. This report comes with the same level of information and homeowner’s reference library as the pre-purchase inspection report.

NEW HOME INSPECTION

People trust that a newly built home has been built properly, but this is not always the case. A pre-purchase inspection is just as relevant on a new home as one on an older home. Perhaps you have had your home custom built from the ground up; an inspection before your final payment to the contractor can identify any deficiencies that need to be remedied before the contract is closed. In addition, all newly built homes come with a 2-5-10 New Home Warranty. British Columbia has Canada’s strongest construction-defect insurance covering materials and labour (2 years), building envelope (5 years including water penetration), and structure (10 years). An inspection prior to these expiry dates can help protect your investment by allowing you to make any timely claims upon your warranty. This report also comes with the invaluable digital homeowners reference library.

MAINTENANCE INSPECTION

Home ownership can be an expensive endeavor. All aspects of a home have an approximate life-span and will eventually need repairing or replacing; even copper piping, will start to fail between 25-35 years in the lower mainland. A maintenance inspection is an inexpensive check up on all the systems of a home to see if they are performing as they should, and whether then may soon become an issue. Being able to budget for expenses you may not have known were coming puts you ahead of the game. This inspection will help you to prioritize spending on your home and will also identify safety concerns and potential insurance issues which may not be covered under your policy. Yet another advantage to this kind of inspection is it may uncover smaller issues, which left unchecked, may balloon into major expenses. This report also comes with the invaluable digital homeowners reference library.

OCCUPANCY WALK-THROUGH INSPECTION

I have found that many new homeowners are unaware of how their heating and AC systems should be set up, or what is required for a successful rain-screen system. These are just a few of the issues that I have come across while accompanying clients on their occupancy walk-throughs. It is crucial to identify these issues and provide a report to the developer for prompt resolution. Unfortunately, corners are often cut during the building process, and municipal inspectors are overworked, which can result in important errors being missed. In fact, I have found more problems with new builds than with older buildings. To address these issues, I offer a comprehensive home inspection report that includes a list of any problems found during the inspection. This report is invaluable in ensuring that your home is in good condition and that all issues are addressed promptly. This report also comes with the invaluable digital homeowners reference library.

Occupancy Wallthroughs with Allegiant Inspections

How did I become the only female home inspector in the lower mainland?

Growing up in an environment of constant renovations undoubtedly led me to over 25 years in the construction industry. Over a lifetime of continued learning, I built a multi-million dollar construction company and eventually found my passion doing inspections and helping people save money and headaches on home ownership.

Thorough and detailed going through the entirety of the home inspection. Investigated all aspects that may be cause for concern, and at a very affordable price. Better to pay a small amount now, rather than a huge amount later! Thanks Victoria

I have known Victoria for some time and her attention to detail is unmatched. She recently did an inspection of our home and provided us with insights to upcoming concerns that would need ti be addressed. Her insights were so very helpful. I strongly recommend you have her in your side when reviewing your property.

We had the pleasure of Victoria doing our pre-purchase inspection and were very pleased. She was thorough and provided a very detailed report of the unit as well as the entire building. She even got up on the roof for a close inspection - now that is dedication to her craft! The fact she is the only female Home Inspector in the Lower Mainland was an added bonus! We would recommend Allegiant Inspections without hesitation to anyone considering buying or selling, or even for new builds (let her find what we may overlook).

Vic is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the area of home inspection. There are many home inspectors out there that miss issues which ends up costing you more when you find these issues out yourself after the fact. Vic holds a reputation of thorough inspections.
