Kamloops Home Inspections: New Regulations For Home Inspectors
I have asked a couple of real estate related professionals to join me on my blog. I felt that it would be beneficial to include professionals in both home inspections and mortgages to share their knowledge and expertise. These two subjects are very important and go hand in hand with real estate.
Introducing Todd Hrycenko from Global Property Inspections here in Kamloops. He will share important information a couple times a month and you are free to post any questions that you have for him here.
The big news in the home inspection industry this month is we are now provincially regulated. What this means for people buying real estate is that EVERY home inspector needs to be licensed by the Business Practices & Consumer Protection Authority of BC (BPCPA). The requirements include membership in one of three governing bodies, including the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors of BC (CAHPI BC), possession of insurance, and a criminal records check. This is a fantastic step forward for the home inspection industry in Kamloops, British Columbia, and hopefully all of Canada as it requires all home inspectors to meet stringent educational, certification, and continuing education requirements to work in the industry. In the end legitimate, qualified, and knowledgeable home inspectors are thrilled with this development because it provides buyers of residential real estate in British Columbia with a level of protection never before seen in the industry. For more info go to the Home Inspection section of the BPCPA website.Todd Hrycenko, Global Property Inspections ac.cbipgnull@ddot 250-371-2787
