Can I hire my own home inspector before making an offer?

Can I hire my own home inspector before making an offer?

I’d like to have a Home Inspector Brampton check out a property before I make an offer. The seller says she hired a home inspector and there’s nothing wrong with the place. Should I take her word for it?

You’re going to need more details about the seller’s inspection before you make a decision. If the inspection was recent, and you’re convinced the inspector was qualified and took a thorough look at the seller’s home, you might have enough information. If the seller is sketchy with the details, can’t provide you with a copy of the written report, or you still have questions or concerns about the state of the house, I strongly advise you to insist upon your own inspection. Please keep in mind that you will first require the seller’s permission first.

A home inspection is an on-site, in-person visual assessment of a home’s condition. An inspector will look at the home’s features and components and provide you with an honest appraisal of its overall condition without poking any holes in the building. Some inspectors may also be able to provide additional services, such as checking indoor air quality, or collecting and sending swab samples to a lab to detect mould. If you’re looking for a qualified Home Inspector Brampton, remember that your real estate will likely be able to point you in the right direction.

Certain items, such as oil tanks, wells and septic systems should be inspected by someone who is qualified and knowledgeable in those types of inspections.

Inspections a major cause of deals busting? Studies say no

Inspections a major cause of deals busting? Studies say no

A National Association of Realtors survey revealed, “only 64 percent of purchase contracts settled on time, 29% experienced delays and 7% fell apart.”Of the 7% that do not close, what gets in the way?

•    39% Financing issues
•    16% Appraisal disagreements
•    11% Title and deed problems
•    9% Inspections (so 9% of the 7%–or about 6/10 of a percent–that do not close are due to inspections)
•    8% Contingencies in the contract
•    The remainder – buyer or seller cold feet, HOA’s creating obstacles, buyers losing jobs.

Inspectors are often feared as “deal-killers”. Very few sales fail as a result of inspections.  A deal that failed because of negative inspection findings is probably a positive for the seller, buyer, and real estate agent. Finding problems before a lot of money changes hands most likely prevents losses, future lawsuits, and hits to an agent’s reputation.“The best defense is a good offense.” A tough pre-listing (or seller’s) inspection will prevent  the “surprise” negative inspection coming after all the parties have contracted. The seller can use the information to make repairs the seller wants to make and be prepared to discuss/negotiate the remaining. Listen to an expert. Gary Keller of Keller-Williams advises to always get a seller’s inspection.

Commercial and residential property purchases are major commitments. Failure to secure the most thorough professional property inspection available is a failure to demand the due diligence we would normally exercise when purchasing a used car, selecting a physician, or considering an investment advisor. Barry Sone, whose syndicated column “House Detective” runs in the Oklahoman, says that the Home Inspector Brampton you want to hire is known by the following phrases: “too picky,” “deal killer,” “takes too long,” “nitpicks everything.”

Home inspectors' association says licensing-fee increase a 'money grab'

Home inspectors' association says licensing-fee increase a 'money grab'

The president of an association representing B.C. home inspectors says an upcoming licensing-fee increase is a “money grab” that will hike prices for consumers and prevent people from entering the industry.

Bob Hamm is also calling on the provincial government to roll back the increase — 95 per cent over three years — and look into the activities of Consumer Protection B.C., the agency that licenses home inspectors and approved the fee hike.

“There’s absolutely no rational reason why they should be getting more money,” said Hamm, who is the head of the Home Inspectors Association of B.C. and a Kelowna-based home inspector. “They should be able to tighten up their process.”

HIABC is the largest of four associations representing home inspectors in the province. There are more than 500 licensed inspectors in B.C.

On Dec. 29, home inspectors received notice from Consumer Protection B.C. that their licensing fees will go up starting April 1. Renewals will increase by 25 per cent each year for three years, and the cost of a new licence will go up by 36 per cent this year, followed by 25-per-cent increases in 2019 and 2020.

By April 1, 2020, the cost of a licence renewal will almost double, to $1,025 from $525. The cost of a new licence will more than double over the same period, from $525 to $1,114.

Service Alberta charges a business with three or fewer licensed inspectors $500 for a two-year licence.

There will also be a two-per-cent annual increase for other charges over the next three years. Fees for replacement licences, late renewals and association accreditation have been eliminated.

In response to an interview request, Consumer Protection B.C. provided a statement from spokeswoman Tatiana Chabeaux-Smith.

“These fee increases reflect our need to recover costs for additional responsibilities we took on as a result of the changes made to the home-inspector regulatory model in September 2016,” the statement said.

According to the agency’s website, the responsibilities include assessing qualifications, administering new requirements and assuming responsibility for consumer inquiries.

However, Hamm alleged Consumer Protection B.C. isn’t doing the work as well as it should be, and that standards have fallen since it took over some regulatory duties from associations.

“This is a process that’s not working, that’s broken and that is damaging the industry when we could be going in a different direction and actually improving the industry,” Hamm said. “It may be that government doesn’t really appreciate exactly what Consumer Protection is not doing and it might be good for them to be aware of.”

That’s why when HIABC submitted an argument against the fee increase during stakeholder consultation in October, they copied Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor-General Mike Farnworth, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Selina Robinson and Premier John Horgan.

Farnworth, whose ministry is responsible for the legislation covering Consumer Protection B.C., was unavailable for comment, but said in an emailed statement that the agency is a non-profit that operates at arm’s length from government, and is responsible for determining fees for the sectors it licenses, including home inspectors.

If the licensing fees increase at the expected rate, Hamm said the higher cost could dissuade people from entering the profession and be a burden on new inspectors. Customers will also be paying more for home inspections.

“That’s almost a hidden tax on consumers because businesses are going to pass that down to consumers — they have to, to stay in business,” he said.
