New residential buildings must be covered by a warranty plan supervised by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (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.
