The Pre-Delivery Inspection
Pre-Delivery Inspection Description
A few weeks before your condominium closing, your builder will invite you to attend a Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI). Here’s what you should know, how you can prepare and what to expect including important details about your new home warranty.
A Pre-Delivery Inspection is an inspection that takes place before you take occupancy giving you the opportunity to view your new home before possession. You may have someone attend with you but may be a distraction when learning how things work for the first time or noting items. If you are not available you can appoint someone to be your designate by completing the Appointment of Designate form by clicking here.A Pre-Delivery Inspection is when your builder will show you how to use things, and you will be able to identify things that are damaged, missing or incomplete which will serve as the official record of condition of your home before you moved in and may be referred to afterwards for warranty purposes. There is no standard for how long it should take but you should have enough time to inspect the entire home. If you do not include incomplete or not installed items they cannot be assessed when noted on a Statutory Warranty form with Tarion and copied to builder. If the builder refuses to write something down on the PDI form you should write a letter to Tarion as soon as possible advising Tarion of this and include the item(s) that did not get written down. If you do not agree with what the builder has put on the PDI you are not required to sign it.
