AS A FIRST TIME BUYER OR ANY BUYER FOR THAT MATTER IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT THERE IS IN EFFECT SINCE APRIL 1 2009 A GOVERNMENT REGULATION THAT REQUIRES ALL HOME INSPECTORS IN BC TO BE LICENSED. 

THE PENALTY FOR CONDUCTING A HOME INSPECTION WITHOUT A LICENSE IS A MAXIMUM OF $5000 FINE.  TO CHECK THAT YOUR CHOSEN INSPECTOR IS LICENSED YOU CAN GO TO THE CANADIAN ASSOCIATION OF HOME AND PROPERTY INSPECTORS OF BC AT http://www.deltaopenhouse.ca www.trishamurphy.ca

errors and omissions and general liability insurance as well as a criminal record check are now a part of licensing qualifications for all home inspectors in BC

AS A PROFESSIONAL BUYERS AGENT I'M HAPPY TO SHARE MY KNOWLEDGE WITH YOU OF IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF BUYING A HOME.
