Not much different from the states, at least some states.
People experience problems after not doing due diligence in choosing an inspectors (or contractor or Realtor or RE solicitor).
The do not want to admit their mistake.
Therefore, the HI (or the others) must be at fault.
The look to ‘government’ to solve the problem (like a spoiled child denying all responsibility for their self created problems).
In comes ‘the government’, which is really a bunch of lawyers and government workers who really know nothing about the subject, and passes a law.
The problem is, laws never prevent problems, they only allow the arrest of suit against someone after the law has been violated.
If a house is inspected by a code inspector, an employee of the ‘government’, and he/she says it is all ‘code’, but the next day the place burns down because of a latent electrical problem, guess what.
There is no way to sue the ‘government’ for negligence.
But the HI can be sued.
Also, remember. In Canada, the CBC is the government.
Whey would the ever want to blame themselves of their group for their own failings.
Best to blame the dang home inspectors. :mrgreen:
