One of the most important purchases that you will make in your lifetime is the purchase of a home. Hiring the right inspector is key in helping you make an informed decision about this purchase.

Choosing a CAHPI inspector means choosing someone you can trust to provide you with an objective and independent comprehensive analysis of the home’s major systems and components.

Here are three big reasons you should look for a qualified CAHPI National Certificate Holder or a Registered Home Inspector to inspect your home:

1 Training and Certification

CAHPI, the only national home and property inspection organization, has highly qualified inspectors. CAHPI membership qualifications include passing the National exam, completion of mentoring with peer evaluation, and continuing education on our eLearning educational portal. Members from across Canada are recognized professionals earning the highest industry designations: National Certificate Holder and Registered Home Inspector.

2 Inspection Standard

Members are committed to conducting inspections in accordance with our National Standard or the CSA-A770 Home Inspection Standard. All members must observe the CAHPI Code of Ethics to provide superior customer service.

3 Inspection Procedures

A qualified CAHPI inspector will examine the major systems including electrical, plumbing, heating, roofing, foundation, and the interior and exterior elements. The process will help determine significant deficiencies that may affect the purchaser’s safety or future planning. The detailed report provided by the inspector can assist homebuyers with negotiations as well as addressing any concerns by your lender or insurer.

Homebuyers, home sellers, homeowners, or anyone who wants to make an informed decision about a house or property based on objective information deserves a professional CAHPI home inspection. Ask your REALTOR® if they can recommend a CAHPI inspector or use our Find an Inspector feature to find an expert in your area.
