What is a home inspection, and do I need one?

Author: Boychuk Mortgage Group |

A home inspection is a thorough examination of a property's condition conducted by a qualified inspector. The inspection typically covers the structural integrity, plumbing, electrical systems, HVAC systems, roof, and other critical components of the home. A home inspection is not mandatory but highly recommended to identify any potential issues or repairs needed before finalising the purchase. It provides you with peace of mind and can help you negotiate repairs or adjustments to the sale price with the seller.
