You are in the process of purchasing a resale property and want to identify any issues that may affect its future ownership. This is to be sure that the property is in a condition that will not cause you a future financial burden stemming from significant structural or material defects. You need a professional to assess the building condition and advise you on potential risks or existing issues. GTA Inspectors will inspect and provide a detailed report within 24 hours, which can act as a perfect document for negotiation between you, the buyer and the seller to resolve any issues or negotiate the price prior to final signature. In summary, this inspection is similar to the pre-handover inspection but without detailed assessment of the cosmetic defects. Remember, unlike pre-handover inspection for brand new properties, this inspection is for resale/used property that is subject to an acceptable normal wear and tear due to usage. Therefore, the focus will be on the following elements: (MEP's - Structural - Infrared Scans)
Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP elements) - To make sure AC's are operating properly with no air leaks from the ducts, condensation issues, as well as the cooling efficiency. We will inspect all electrical outlets, light switches and most importantly the electrical panels to make sure that there are no electrical safety hazard such as reverse wiring, hot breakers, missing grounds, etc. Finally, we will inspect all plumbing fixtures in bathrooms and kitchen and look for leaks, loose faucets, broken or leaky tubs, and anything related to plumbing connections and drains.
Structural inspection is important and can pose significant cost burden to rectify, We will inspect the foundation walls, exterior facade, interior walls, floors, and ceiling to make sure that it is free of any structural cracks that can jeopardize the structural integrity of the property
Infrared scan using our state of the art professional cameras is the last step to scan the entire property and check for any leaks, mold, termite infestation, electrical faults that could not be seen by the naked eye
