Home buyer’s pre-closing home inspection service

The home inspection service is performed prior to closing on either a new or existing home. The home inspection highlights deficiencies of  all components and systems in the home, includes a comprehensive written report accompanied by digital photos depicting safety and health concerns and construction deficiencies of the home. In addition to the report, the new home owner will receive a home maintenace manual and related information articles. The home inspection report will give the buyer the necessary information required to make the best decision possible.

Home seller’s pre-listing home inspection service

The home inspection service is performed prior to listing or selling the home and details all deficiencies that can affect safety, health and the general upkeep of the home.  The pre -listing report will include digital photos, a comrehensive report, a home maintenace manual and related information articles. The home owner can now address these concerns prior to selling. A pre-listing home inspection service helps to inspire confidence in prospective buyers regarding the condition of the home. The inspection will reduce time spent in contract negotiation, because, an unbiased and independent home inspector has inspected the home’s components and systems.

New home builder’s warranty home inspection service

The home inspection service will assist the new home owner with the Ontario New Home Warranty Program ( Tarion ). The report will detail all components, systems and cosmetic issues in the home and be accompanied by digital photos. The owner now has the information required to address all deficiencies, both material and workmanship. New home inspections for the first time buyer are educational and eye opening, many first time buyers are not familiar with homes or maintenance issues. It is the home inspector’s  job to help familiarize the new home owner with potential home issues.

Bruce completed two of our inspections, before we moved into our home, we truly appreciated the thoroughness of his report and the details he covered, and the advice presented in the report! Would definitely recommend him to family and friends!!

We are very happy with our inspection report from Bruce. He was punctual, thorough and included lots of pictures with recommended timelines for repair. With details from his report we were able to have the sellers agree to repair a problem before closing. A problem we probably would've missed and had to pay thousands for down the line. I would recommend BLT to family and friends.

Bruce more than exceeded our expectations of a home inspector. He reflected a high level of knowledge in his field. He was punctual and had the time management skills and ability to meet our deadline on time. We would not hesitate to recommend BLT Home Inspections to any of our friends.

Bruce did a great job with our home inspection. I work in the home and property management business and I've seen many issues that arise in the home. I felt that Bruce was spot on with his identification of the status of items on the home inspection checklist. His report was very well written and packed with great, well explained images. I will use his report as my list of 'things to do' as soon as we take possession of the home.
