If you’re a buyer, you are about to make a very expensive purchase and you don’t want just anyone to do the inspection. Choosing the right inspector is as important as choosing the right real estate professional. Make a mistake on either one and the result can be catastrophic. Holley Toronto Home Inspections offer only inspections with REGISTERED HOME INSPECTORS certified by BOTH of the following professional home inspector certification associations:
The Canadian Association of Home & Property Inspectors (CAHPI)
The Canadian Association of Home & Property Inspectors® (CAHPI®) is a national association, whose mission is to promote and develop the home inspection profession. CAHPI is considered the voice of Canada’s “home inspection industry”. Home inspections began as a consumer service in the 1970’s and it soon became apparent that selecting a Home Inspector was becoming as important as selecting a qualified real estate professional, or even the right home.
To meet this need, the Canadian Association of Home Inspectors® (CAHI®) was formed in 1982. CAHI operated as the Canadian arm of the American Society of Home Inspectors® (ASHI®), until 1994, when several provincial/regional organizations formed CAHI National. In September 2002, the name of CAHI was changed to the Canadian Association of Home & Property Inspectors (CAHPI®) The current Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics adopted by CAHPI are a derivative of the ASHI model. There are now seven (7) provincial/regional organizations, from coast to coast, with over 1,300 provincial members.
The Ontario Association of Home Inspectors (OAHI) is a not-for-profit professional society established in 1987. Membership in OAHI is voluntary and its members include private, fee-paid home inspectors. OAHI’s objectives include promotion of excellence within the profession and continual improvement of its members’ inspection services to the public.
