HOME & COMMERCIAL INSPECTOR
What to Expect
Before the Inspection
Book: Request an Inspection by booking online, text, phone, or email. Inspections usually start at 9 or 10 am and can last 1 to 4 hours, Monday to Saturday. The end time of the inspection depends on home or commercial building. If the inspection is outside of Parksville, the Comox Valley, or Campbell River, we will discuss availability and costs.
Confirm: After you book an inspection, I can contact your Realtor or the seller (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. If you prefer to contact your Realtor or the seller instead, that works too!
Contract: After the inspection date and time is confirmed, 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 building maintenance. I’ll work around anyone that is home or if the business is open, so no need to worry about the home or business being empty.
Wrap-up: You’re welcome to join me for part of the inspection or meet me on site at the end, or I’ll contact you with a summary of the inspection and we can talk again after you’ve read the report. It’s very important to read the full report to ensure you have all the information from the inspection before you remove subjects. Always ensure your inspection is scheduled so you’ll have at least one full day to read the report before subjects need to be removed.
Report: You will receive a full color email report. For a home, the report will be ready usually by 7 pm that evening (sometimes the next day depending on the age and condition of the home). For commercial or residential, it may take 3 to 5 days to complete the report, so we’ll discuss this before the inspection is booked.
Inspections for Safety, Security, Serenity
Greetings from Mindful Inspections Ltd. As a professional residential and commercial 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 direction 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 accolades.
Every 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.
*Consumer Protection BC does not regulate commercial inspections.
