Effective March 31, 2009 Vancouver home inspectors must be licenced, as per regulations from BC Government..It is important or the BC consumer to have the best property information possible and an independent inspection is a great starting point for consumers to learn about property condtions.

Since 1998 BCREA has recomended the Government license home inspectors, saying that solid information helps consumers have confidence in their Vancouver home buying decisions.

Most consumes will always learn more about a property by having a home inspection and will find out specific details about the property they intend to purchase, that way they reduce the risk of surprises.

If you are purchasing a Vancouver home in a seller's market, it is advisable to carry out a building inspection prior to writing the offer, then you can leave the clause out of the contract of purchase and sale.
