Home Inspections, Oil Tank Scans, Perimeter Drain Checks

Victoria’s only 3-Part Full-Service Home Inspection Company

Any Victoria Home Inspector can perform a basic home inspection and give you a written report. And for the most part, that is exactly what they do.

But a Home Inspector from Meadowvale is the only one who can give you

  • a comprehensive home inspection,
  • an underground oil tank scan, and
  • perimeter drain check 

in just one visit! 

We use our own ground penetrating radar unit and CCTV drain camera – so there is never a need to call anyone else, and you never have to wait for results. And we always use unmarked vehicles to protect the privacy of both buyers and sellers.

  • No need to call another company and wait for results.

Perimeter Drain

Home Inspections for Buyers and Sellers

Buyer’s Pre-Purchase Home Inspection:

When you purchase a home, you want to be sure you know exactly what you are buying. Most homeowners are honest and don’t try to hide defects in their homes.  However, homeowners are often unaware of problems.  You should never rely on the seller’s Property Condition Disclosure Statement to include everything you want to know about the condition of the property.  A report from an experienced and knowledgeable home inspector is essential to be sure you are fully aware of the condition of the home.

Seller’s Pre-Listing Home Inspection:

If you are selling your home, you want to get the best price possible, in the shortest time possible.  Few things are more frustrating than receiving a new lower offer, or even having a sale fall apart completely as a result of the buyer’s inspection.

Often the defects discovered by home inspectors could have been dealt with inexpensively and quickly had you been aware of them.  A pre-listing inspection will help prevent surprises that could affect the sale.  With a pre-listing inspection you will know in advance what any buyer’s inspection is likely to reveal, and negotiations with the buyer are more likely to reach a successful conclusion.
