It’s a good idea to have any piece of real estate inspected before investing in it, including recreational properties such as a cottage or a ski chalet. Such inspections are very similar to the Pre-Purchase inspection of a house in that they are visual inspections of the readily accessible major systems of the property including: Roof; Exterior; Structure; Electrical; Heating; Plumbing (but not the septic system); Insulation and Interior. Any significant issues that would affect the buying decision will be identified as well as maintenance and safety issues. The potential buyer will receive an extensive easy-to-read electronic inspection report with photographs, colour illustrations and diagrams as well as links to related reference materials. Buyers are encouraged to attend the inspection to learn more about the property firsthand as well as to ask any questions.
