To further my remarks. For the most part; home Inspectors’ in Quebec have a symbiotic relationship with real estate brokers. Most realities/real estate brokers, if not all, note whom attended the inspection, for legal reasons.
For that reason alone, the OACIQ would be best suited as the authority holding jurisdiction for home inspectors.
Buyers can turn to their realtors for help finding a good inspector. The regulatory authority that oversees realtors and mortgage brokers in Quebec, the Organisme d’autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ), outlines strict requirements for brokers when referring [home inspectors that help weed out the less qualified. I concur. InterNACHI proper can help. G apparently is running down his own rabbit hole.
The Montreal Gazette recently wrote an article: Real estate: The trouble with home inspections The SEO used, life-homes-the-trouble-with-home-inspectors.
I was confused, and I bet ‘so are the public.’ Big Time…
They, the individual that wrote the article, goes on to say/Complain/Bemoan; There is a big problem with the home inspection industry that many buyers don’t know about: pretty much anyone can call themselves a “home inspector” in Quebec.
Funny when you think about it. Has nothing to do with Home Inspections. Home Inspection would be SoP.
Remember the BC CBC journalist Elaine Young that latched onto the [home inspector Imer Toth]?(https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/home-inspector-must-pay-192-000-1.785296): The court ordered Toth to pay the $192,000 difference between his estimate and the final repair bill. Imre Toth of Aldergrove was negligent because he failed to inspect the entire home, and should have advised the couple to hire a structural engineer before they bought the $1.1-million house in September 2006.
Then she went down the rabbit hole following Mike Holmes, a non licensed general contractor that fast tracked his son to owning a home inspection franchise in Ontario, as he slandered every home inspector unaware of SoP.
Out of that mess came Licensing in BC and Alberta for no good reasoning.
Hopefully this get straightened out. The OACIQ is best suited for seeing home inspector qualifications.
Lets not jump into the Quebec licensing home inspectors rabbit hole again. Remember where you voice went with the PQ, G?
