“Dirty Tricks”



What are Home-Sellers Hiding?



As a veteran home inspector and property consultant, I’ve seen just about every “dirty trick” used out there. When our team inspects a property, we take great pride in discovering hidden defects and we warn our clients about potential issues. We’ve even been called the “Mike Holmes” of the West Coast…






Who is Really at Fault?


When property damage occurs in a strata property or a Co-op Unit or even a rental unit, determining blame can be a tricky business! Be sure to hire an independent consultant to make certain responsibility is fairly determined…

Why are we the Lower Mainland’s #1 Condo Inspection Company?


Duxbury & Associates has been inspecting condos for over a decade. We don’t simply inspect the unit; we also inspect the entire building exterior and all accessible common areas. We offer you a comprehensive inspection report, and we “decipher” an existing depreciation or engineering reports, to fully inform you on anything wrong with the property and outline potential BIG expenses looming. Our experience enables us to reveal hidden property issues which can be difficult to detect but could cost you big-time in the long run.

Our Customers Say...

What Our Clients Say…



“My experience has been so positive”

“Dear Glenn, Thank you for your assistance. As a single, first time home buyer with little experience to draw on, my anxiety level was elevated to say the least. This was greatly reduced by your customer relation skills, accommodation with scheduling and time you made available.

Your experience and knowledge became increasingly evident as the unit and building inspection proceeded. Your attention to detail with explanations and answers to my questions made this apparent. The information gathered identified a number of items in the condo that needed attention, which I had overlooked in my preceding personal inspection of the premises. Repairs are now in progress which have helped me avoid unnecessary expenses. I should add that the satisfaction of being in a reliable and informed position has greatly enhanced my confidence in my ability to move forward with my decision.

My experience has been so positive and I have no hesitation at all if you wish to pass on my recommendation for your services. Again, your help has been so very much appreciated.”
