Townhouse Inspections

Townhouse Inspections

A townhouse shares similar structural elements with a detached house.
Common elements managed by strata council will also be inspected in our townhouse inspections.

Having a home inspection helps uncovering issues, inside and out, and  protects you from any unexpected costs.

Townhouses are architecturally similar to single-family houses except that townhouse owners also own a specified share of the common elements such as the roof, exterior wall, and structural components. If the building is in poor condition, you, as the owner, will have to pay your share of the repairs as well as on-going maintenance. We believe having your townhouse unit comprehensively inspected is the best protection one can get. As part of our townhouse inspection, common elements are also included in our inspection checklist for your peace of mind.
