Buying a condo is a major investment that deserves special attention. At Maître Inspecteur, we understand the importance of conducting a thorough inspection to help you make an informed decision.

What Exactly is a Condo Inspection?

A condo inspection is a detailed assessment of the overall condition of a condominium unit and the building itself, carried out by a certified inspector. It allows the potential buyer or current owner to understand the real state of the condo and make an informed decision regarding the purchase, sale, or potential renovations.

It’s important to note that condo inspection includes not only the private unit (living room, kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.) but also the common areas of the building (roof, plumbing, electricity, building structure, etc.) that fall under the responsibility of the condominium association.

A condo inspection can reveal major or minor defects, compliance issues, items to watch for, and elements needing repair or replacement in the short or medium term. Once the inspection is completed, a detailed report is typically provided to the buyer or owner, highlighting the findings and recommendations.

Choosing to have a condo inspected before purchase is a recommended practice. It enables the buyer to ensure the quality of the investment and to anticipate any repair or replacement costs. Furthermore, it can help negotiate the sale price if major defects are discovered.

It is crucial to choose an inspector who is not only qualified and experienced but also understands the specificities of condo inspections, especially the obligations and responsibilities related to condominium ownership in Quebec.

Why choose Maître Inspecteur?

Detailed Inspection

Our certified building inspectors are experts in condo inspections, whether it’s an individual unit or a multi-story structure. We examine all aspects of the condo unit, including mechanical and electrical systems, plumbing, structure, roofing, insulation, and more.

We Evaluate Common Areas

Beyond the unit itself, we also take into account the common areas of the building, such as the entrance hall, hallways, stairs, elevators, and garage. These elements are essential for assessing the state of your investment.

Cutting-edge Technologies

With the help of advanced technologies, like thermography, we can detect problems that are not easily visible to the naked eye, such as water leaks, insulation issues, and electrical anomalies.

Quality Report

Following the inspection, you will receive a detailed inspection report including images, observations, and recommendations for future repairs and maintenance. This report is designed to give you a clear picture of the current state of the condo unit, and help you anticipate potential costs in the future.

At Maître Inspecteur, we adhere to strict inspection standards to ensure you get an accurate and complete assessment of your future property. Trust us with your condo inspection and contact us today to schedule an appointment.
