Alrek Meipoom: Home Inspection

Alrek Meipoom – President OAHI / Ontario Association of Home Inspectors on a home inspection case in BC

The B.C. Supreme Court last week ordered a home inspector to pay nearly $192,000 to a North Vancouver couple for a faulty inspection.

The inspector’s estimate of $20,000 to repair a house was less than a tenth of the actual cost of $212,000. The court ordered the inspector to pay the $192,000 difference, saying he’d failed to inspect the entire home and should have advised the couple to hire a structural engineer before buying the $1.1-million property in September 2006.”
