Today new home builds / purchases are protected under the Tarion Warranty Corporation, (formerly, Ontario New Home Warranty Program). Even with this protection many new homes are built with defects. The builder does not always inspect sub contractor’s work and/or the local municipal inspector cannot always be available during the entire home construction.
Inspections are normally conducted at the completion of the home construction before the final walk through with the builder. Items inspected as part of a home buying inspection are listed under the previous section (Pre-Listing Inspection).
