Types of inspections

Pre-purchase inspection

Have you filed a promise to purchase a property or are about to do so? A pre-purchase inspection by an experienced building inspector is an essential step before completing the transaction. Buying a property is an important decision and is mostly a significant investment. It is therefore essential that the buyer is well informed about the general condition of the coveted building. This is so that he can make a proper decision based on the current condition of the building.

The pre-purchase inspection conducted by Homa Inspection Building is strictly visual and covers all the interior and exterior components that make up the building.

Benefits and Advantages of pre-sale (Pre-Listing) Inspection

Sell Faster

Home inspections have traditionally been for the benefit of the purchaser.
Pre-Listing inspection benefit all parties – purchasers, vendors and Realtors.
Pre-Listing inspection discloses problems in advance, allowing the seller to either correct them or present them as is, assuring that the accepted offer can move quickly and smoothly to closing without delay.

Sell for more money

Pre-Listing inspection promotes openness and total transaction transparency which establishes trust, a positivity that can help push sale prices higher. If the home is found to be in better condition than originally thought, the price can reflect this. A vendor who pays for a home inspection will be further ahead than one who has to renegotiate. He or she may even sell the house faster.

Pre-Listing inspection can reduce the need for last minuet re-negotiations and might encourage buyer to waive their inspection contingency. If all parties know the condition of the house prior to the offer, there is no need for renegotiation. As most real estate agents know, renegotiation is very difficult. Vendors have already mentally sold the house; purchasers are suffering buyers’ remorse.

Sometimes, the home inspection will reveal items which should be repaired immediately. A pre-inspected listing allows the vendor to repair the problem prior to putting the house on the market.


An inspection at the time of listing can also help a Realtor deal with a vendor who has unrealistic expectations. The inspection report is good ammunition for explaining why you can’t ask top bucks for a house which is not in top condition.

Use as a Marketing Tool

The agent can use the report as a marketing tool that can help sell the home. It differentiates the listing and gives prospective buyers more confidence.

Reduce Stress

It is normal to worry that your home may have some problems that you are not aware of. With a pre-listing inspection, you will not have to worry about what buyer will find or you and the buyer will already know the issues, reinforcing trust and credibility.

Peace of Mind for The Purchaser

There is no doubt that part of the value of a home inspection is a guided tour of the house for the prospective purchaser. The Homa Home Inspection Services can return to do a walk-through with the purchaser, if requested.

Pre-reception (pre-delivery) inspection

New residential buildings must be covered by a warranty plan supervised by the RĂ©gie du bâtiment du QuĂ©bec (RBQ) under a government decree. The guarantee plan provides for an important step before taking possession of the building, namely the pre-reception (pre-delivery) inspection carried out according to the APCHQ performance guide (listing some 280 rules of good practice) in addition to Quebec’s national building code and its plans and specifications.

The qualified building inspector can determine which work to complete and/or correct. The inspector also helps the buyer to detect potentially costly construction defects, to have the right time on the quality of the construction and to protect himself in the event of a dispute with the contractor.
