Purchasing a home is one of the largest single investments in a person's lifetime. Buying, selling, or maintaining a home depends on reliable professional advice and well-informed homeowners depend on qualified residential home inspectors. Reports can give detailed insight and essential checklist into construction mistakes and significant repairs. Furthermore, the inspection will provide valuable information on the need for maintenance to keep a home in good condition. After reviewing your report, you will better understand the condition of the house which will help you make informed, confident, decisions.
Subject to successful home inspection clauses help avoid risks. Real estate agents and lawyers are very knowledgeable with home inspection clauses and it is important that you review the sales contract with both to verify that the clause is included and properly worded. Make sure your offer can be withdrawn, or altered, depending on results of the report.
Remember: even when agreements of purchase and sale cannot include this clause, inspections remain critical to identify immediate life safety and maintenance concerns.
Pre-purchase inspections are valuable for vendors preemptively avoiding problems encountered later during negotiations with a buyer. For this purpose, pre-sale inspections are highly recommended because they may help offers subject to successful home inspections proceed with minimal disruption (e.g. no last minute rush to schedule contractors before closing).
A qualified and reputable home inspector will help protect your client's interests as well as your own hard earned reputation. Our inspection and report writing standards meet CAN/CSA-A770-16 home inspection standards, client interactions are conducted in a professional manner by a well spoken inspector, and when negotiations require burning the midnight candle, a friendly voice is ready to take your call/text and answer questions.
Although homeowners purchase a home "as is," misrepresentations made by the vendor's or buyer's agents may result in lawsuits. Therefore an increasing reliance has been put on the written opinions of qualified building inspectors (Ron Morin, B.A.), B.ED., LL.B). However it is not sufficient to rely solely on a home inspection, nor on just any person with a business card calling themselves a "pro". Buried oil tanks, for example, may not be discovered during a home inspection (inspectors obviously do not perform excavations) therefore Disclosure Statements are important. Likewise, there is a wide range of professional qualifications. It may not be sufficient to rely on just any inspector to absolve your yourself from claims in court. A good inspector will have received relevant training, participate in continued skills development, hold E&O insurance, and a bond with your real estate association. These are questions you can answer with confidence by recommending RJ Miller Building Professionals on your list of qualified home inspectors.
Reports may include defects that were not anticipated by the buyer. While this is normal for any property, it may cause anxiety for an inexperienced buyers with little or no experience in building construction, maintenance, and renovation. Good home inspectors write reports that clearly explain the implications of each deficiency and are available to review reports with clients to further discuss these observations. In our opinion, buyers have increased confidence and are better able to make informed decisions when presented with detailed reports and a reliable inspector. RJ Miller Building Professionals prepares well written reports following the best Identify, Explain, and Advise writing methods. Furthermore, we follow up each report with an offer to meet, in-person, to review reports. While most buyers do not need this level of service, those that do are extremely grateful, and we call that a job well done.

I used Rob for my home inspection this past April. He was very thorough and knowledgeable. I ended up having the roof done and needless to say the roof wasn't done properly. Rob came back after the roof was re-done free of charge. I would recommend him to everyone and anyone and I couldn't think of anyone else to use from now on. Looking forward to more business In the future! — Janice C.
