Don’t let it happen to you!


Never RUSH into such a large investment! With the fiercely competitive housing market in the lower mainland, many home buyers have blindly entered into bidding wars for “hot properties”.

Don’t let it happen to you!

“With the staggering amount of homes sold early this year and the ongoing bidding wars, many folks are opting not to have a Home Inspection done, so that they can purchase the home they want, even if it is a money-pitThis was even remarked on in the news…” 


When is it “too late” to claim New Home Warranty Defects?

Knowing your home warranty insurance expiry date is critical to determine before your coverage disappears, forever. Insurance companies are very strict about these deadlines…

Home Warranty-Check: 
A professional home warranty-check will ensure the builder has provided quality workmanship and will repair the defects in your new home covered by this protection.

What you need to know about the New Home Warranty Program:

Even if your home is covered by the 2-5-10 New Home Warranty Program, it’s up to you to document all deficiencies in writing and report them to the builder, H.P.O. (Homeowner Protection Office) and the Warranty-Provider, before those critical dates.

Many homeowners can easily identify cosmetic deficiencies but it takes a true professional who is familiar with building codes and how a home is built to find the rest. The best time to check is after you’ve been living there, but prior to the 1-year warranty date expiring, even if you had an inspection done at purchase time.
