Building inspections

This blog is for Buyers of Property in British Columbia

Effective 2009 of March it is a rquirement that Building  Inspectors be licensed and have propert insurance such as errors and omissions.  This can be found under the consumer protection website

A Buyers Agent should always advise of an inspection report as part of your subject clause.  The goal is to ensure the buyer has full knowledge of results of the results of the inspection, and if necessary, clarification from the inspector or any other qualified person.  Property Inspectors will note the deficiencies on the home and also educate the buyer on future repairs of the home.

RealEstate Agents are not licensed or qualified to do an inspection of a property. It is our due diligence to reccomend 3 qualified and licensed individuals for this important task.   

The RealEstate Council has recommended that the Buyer pay for their own inspection and also choose the inspector 

For more information on Buying a home or inspection reports please contact me.

skana drive tsawwassen

Realtor tour this friday morning of newly listed homes in Tsawwassen was interesting.  My favorite home on Tsawwassen tour was a lovely property up in the Village at 1043 Skana Drive.  It is listed by my colleague.  Very Prestigeous neighborhood an older home nicely renovated and updated .  All the windows are new and have increased in size to enhance more natural light.  The home is 2732 sq ft and is on a beautiful 9310 sq ft lot facing south west with a swimming pool.

I would be thrilled to show this home to any of my buyers.  Or you can view it online at our delta open house website  you can even get an aerial goole map view and see the pool.  click on the tsawwassen tab bar.



On January 31, 2010 the home renovation tax credit program ended.  it was introduced in 2009 by the federal Finance Minister as part of the governments economic stimulus plan  Ottawa estimates that 4.6 million households will claim the credit on their 2009 taxes for credits on such renovations as kitchens, bathrooms basement s, painting, blinds and windows, even doors. and lanscaping.  

The Canadian RealEstate Association is lobbying the government to extend the tax credit.  If you are in favor you can lobby as well

heres how;  go to and then Resouce Centre (left) and then contact your MP.  

A great majority of Tsawwassen Homes are older, on large beautiful lots and greatly benefit from Home Renovations


Its to everyones benefit to keep our homes in tip top shape, don't you agree
