OAHI Member Home Inspectors Must Carry E&O Insurance

(MISSISSAUGA, Oct. 4, 2017) When choosing a home inspector how do you know if they are insured. All practicing members of the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors (OAHI), which was established in 1994, must carry E & O and general liability insurance.

The requirement, established at OAHI’s AGM earlier this year has been enforced as home inspectors renew their membership in the Association, the largest for home inspectors in Ontario.

“The mandatory insurance requirement is another policy by OAHI that demonstrates our commitment to a high level of professionalism,” said Murray Parish, RHI and president of OAHI.

When homebuyers choose an OAHI member they can be rest assured they are choosing a home inspector who is highly educated, professional, accountable and insured.

Helping First Time Homebuyers

(Mississauga, ON Nov. 15, 2016) The Ontario Association of Home Inspectors (OAHI) welcomes Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa’s announcement to help first-time homebuyers. Since its establishment in 1994, OAHI members have been helping consumers with their biggest investment.

For first-time homebuyers, that means educating them on the various systems of their home: heating, ventilation, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, septic and more. As homes become more complicated, it is imperative buyers understand how their homes work.

OAHI members pride themselves on providing educated, professional service to homebuyers and will continue to advise buyers on their purchases. In its book How to Buy Your Home, the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) recommends OAHI member home inspectors.
