The devil is in the contract wording.

Hope someone posts the contract and checklist.

All the information can be found here. The only stipulation is that the Inspection MUST be performed by a Amerispec Inspector.

OntarioACHI, the NHICC and PHPIC have all been in touch with First Canadian Title to try to open this up to other trained inspectors but after 2 years of being fobbed off with platitudes, I suspect nothing will happen to change things.

Our Purpose; Strong brands and passionate people – these are the building blocks to providing excellent customer service in our businesses.

Established Home Inspectors know the value of their service and charge accordingly.

Roy, how much information you get for free?

Like you’ve been telling others… “LOOK IT UP YOURSELF”!!
