It’s finally here. The moment you’ve spent months waiting for and trying to make sure you’re as ready as possible for as you embark on this new chapter in your life.

Yes, it’s time to move into to your new home!

But before you take occupancy of your new condo, you must first have a Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI).

A Customer Care Representative arranges the Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) of your new home.  The Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) is approximately one (1) hour. This consists of a walk-through and a visual inspection of the unit.  It provides you, the Homeowner, with an opportunity to view your new home prior to taking occupancy and to document any pre-possession damages or missing items you may observe.  The Builder’s representative will carry out an orientation and explain to you how the various systems work in your home including heating/cooling, electrical and plumbing.  It is very important that you understand how to operate your home’s systems because not using them properly could affect your warranty coverage.

You will also be asked to review and sign a Certificate of Completion and Possession (CCP). This document states your home’s enrolment number with Tarion and the date of possession, which is also the start date of your statutory warranty.

Davis Smith Developments will give you copies of the completed PDI form and CCP for your records and will forward copies to Tarion.

Tarion, formerly the Ontario New Home Warranty Program, is an independent not-for-profit corporation that oversees and licenses all new home builders in Ontario, ensuring that all new home buyers receive the benefits and protection of their builder’s warranty in accordance with the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act.
