Home Inspection Subject Conditions

 Why are Home Inspections so Important in BC?  Because the state of the law in BC is generally “buyer beware” absent fraud or negligent misrepresentation or a latent defect.

Does the Property Disclosure Statement Protect Me? Not much, it is only a statement of the Sellers Current Knowledge and is a “snapshot in time”.

All I need is a home inspection right? Not always, home inspectors are generalists and if they identify a problem a good rule of thumb is to get the specialist out there for further investigation.
