What does a home inspection include?
Our Inspectors will thoroughly examine all the major systems of the house, including the interior, exterior, roof, electricity, plumbing, heating, and attic.

If you have any questions relating to the report, we are happy to answer them. In fact, we offer free telephone consultation for as long as you own the home.

FAQ’s for Montreal Home Sellers
What are the home seller disclosure obligations in Quebec?
The seller must disclose everything they know about the house to potential sellers, including its weaknesses. This is covered in a formal declaration completed by the real estate agent or the Home Inspector.
Why do I need a Home Inspection?
A Home Inspection helps you understand exactly where you stand before a buyer enters the house. If you can declare a problem before a buyer finds it, it can’t become a point of negotiation on the final price.
Do I have to repair everything wrong with the house?
No. Any repairs on your home are up to you; but depending on the nature of the repairs, you may get a better price for the home.
