A Condo Inspection is a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of an individual condominium or apartment. It is different from the inspection of a detached home because full access is restricted to one Strata unit and a full inspection of the whole Strata property is not possible.
All major systems and components inside the unit are examined, including;
Walls, windows, doors, ceilings
Plumbing, heating, cooling, electrical and drainage systems
In addition to the Standards Woodbridge Inspection also reviews;
Exterior & common areas of the property. These are outside the scope of condo inspections, because a thorough inspection of a multifamily building requires access to more than one suite, takes many hours and typically involves cutting open areas of walls etc. and costs thousands of dollars. However we recognize that it is important for a prospective buyer to have a good understanding of the condition of the whole building; not just one particular suite. Mike uses his background and experience as an architect to review available Depreciation or Engineer's reports on the condition of the building in advance of the inspection and also typically spends an additional hour on site reviewing the exterior, common and service areas of the property. Comments relating to areas outside the suite will be based on prior experience and limited observation of exterior elements; they are provided as a courtesy to you and we have to exclude liability for them.
Reports are clear, balanced & concise and contain photos & notes on significant items needing attention.
