What to Expect
Before the Inspection
Book: Request an Inspection by booking online, text, phone, or email. Inspections usually start at 9 am and finish between 10:30 and 12 pm, Monday to Saturday. The end time of the inspection depends on home. If the home is outside of Parksville, the Comox Valley, or Campbell River, we can discuss availability and travel.
Confirm: After you book an inspection, I’ll contact your Realtor or the home owner (if For Sale By Owner) and confirm the time and date of the inspection and get back to you if we need to make any changes.
Contract: After I confirm the inspection date and time, I’ll email you an Inspection Agreement to review. The agreement is a requirement by both the Consumer Protection BC and the Home Inspection Association of BC.
Day of the Inspection
Inspection: The inspection will take approximately 1 to 4 hours, depending on the size and previous home maintenance.
Wrap-up: The last 30 minutes of the inspection is a good time for you to meet me at the house to review some of the items that were found. If you’re not able to meet, no worries, we can chat by phone. You are welcome to meet me earlier during the inspection, but check with your Realtor as they often are required to be on site when you are.
Report: You will receive a full color email report, usually by 7 pm that evening (sometimes the next day depending on the age and condition of the home). It’s very important to review the full report to ensure that you have all the information from the home inspection before removing subjects.
Home Inspections for Safety, Security, Serenity
Greetings from Mindful Inspections Ltd. As a professional home inspector for the central to northern Vancouver Island region, I am dedicated to serving my clients with the highest quality customer service. I bring over 20 years of experience with renovations and real estate investing, along with the experience of how to communicate my findings to you in a way that is easy to understand.
An Eye for Detail!
Gone are the days where a little knowledge goes a long way. A few years ago, Consumer Protection BC regulated our province’s home inspection industry, and with assistance from the Home Inspection Association of BC, the training and exams are now the most rigorous in all of Canada. Thanks to my many years of experience in and around construction, I finished the certificate program with accodates.
Every Home Inspection is unique and for each one, I bring over 20 years of experience with renovations and real estate investing, as well as a meticulous eye for detail. I don’t just inspect your home, I’m in for the long run. Call me when you move in. From showing you how to clean the filter in your dishwasher to explaining the reason why you have holes in the bottom of your brick siding.
