CANADIAN STANDARDS ASSOICIAITION (CSA) A770 Home Inspection Standard
Home inspection is a critical element in helping consumers understand the condition of their home, but improper home inspections can lead to serious safety and financial risks for home buyers and increased pressure for home inspectors.
There can be a high degree of variation in home inspection practices across associations and jurisdictions. This makes it difficult for home inspectors to demonstrate that their services are thorough and add value to their customers, while customers face greater uncertainty as to whether their homes have been properly inspected. Part of why these issues exist is because there hasn't been a consistent set of requirements for a proper home inspection.
Introducing CSA A770 Home Inspection – a first-of-its kind standard that provides the minimum requirements for a proper home inspection.
CSA A770 establishes key systems and components that need to be inspected in and around the home, and outlines general inspection methods and minimum reporting requirements for inspectors to follow.
CSA A770 aims to help foster increased consistency in home inspection practices, leading to improved service quality and consumer protection.
