Pre-purchase/pre-sale inspection

It is during the pre-purchase inspection that a buyer can familiarize himself with his future property. The inspector’s role is to accompany the buyer by examining the visible and accessible systems and components of a building such as :

  • the exterior
  • the structure
  • the interior
  • the roof
  • plumbing and electricity
  • central heating and air conditioning
  • insulation and ventilation.

The inspector will also answer the buyer’s questions and provide a complete report identifying any deficiencies observed at the time of the inspection that could diminish the use or value of the property or pose a risk to the safety of residents.

The pre-sale inspection is a service for clients who wish to obtain a health check of their property before putting it up for sale to allow them to identify certain deficiencies that need to be rectified. As a seller, it is an excellent way to prepare for the sale of your property, to be able to increase its value and avoid unpleasant surprises that could cause you to lose a potential buyer.

Whether you are a buyer or a seller, trust Inspection NOALEX’s expertise. With a complete building inspection, you’ll have peace of mind when it comes time to carry out one of the biggest transactions of your life.

Pre-reception inspection

Are you buying a new construction? The New Residential Building Warranty Plan Regulation requires an inspection prior to acceptance. The inspector can examine the systems and components of your future property to identify any work to be completed, deficiencies or construction defects. This will allow you to advise the contractor of any items that need to be corrected or completed.


Thermography is used to measure the temperature of surfaces using infrared rays. At NOALEX Inspection, the inspector, certified thermographer, will use his infrared camera to scan the surface of the building. This will allow him to quickly verify and detect problems invisible to the naked eye such as :

  • insulation failure
  • air infiltration or exfiltration
  • humidity and condensation
  • water infiltration.
