Thank you Len for a thoroughly impressive and professional home inspection. Your knowledge base is astounding, and you also took the time to walk us through your knowledge sharing at a pace where we could follow and understand. The extra information imparted orally, visually and via the computer allowed us to peruse the report at our speed. We are better for the experience, consider it money well spent, and now feel very well informed about the home we wish to purchase. We know the steps that need to and could be taken to turn the house into our home.

The report was very thorough and complete and the quality of service and timeliness was excellent. We would happily recommend you to anyone wishing to have a high quality home inspection done.

An excellent inspector who went above and beyond what was expected. Thank you Len for making us feel at ease about our home purchase.
- G.L., February 2016
Our third time availing ourselves of Len's services, this time for an investment property. Why do we keep coming back? Attention to detail, encyclopaedic knowledge, no nonsense, punctuality, clarity, helpful hints and a sense of humour on top. My sister-in-law ended up "scooping" the house for her own future home, which means we're back on the hunt for a good investment property. Will we be getting Len to look that one over? Absolutely.
- F.O., December 2015
Len is very professional and knowledgeable. As a first time home buyer, I have very little knowledge regarding a house, how it works and what to watch for. Aside from him inspecting the house, he gave me points on why or how we need to have it fixed or replace or put in. Highly recommended! He goes above and beyond his duty. I couldn't be happier on his service!
- A.T., December 2015
Very knowledgeable. Explains items in a clear and he is easy to understand.
- M.F., November 2015
Hi Len It was very good to meet you. We thought you were very thorough and knowledgeable during the process of the inspection, and made some excellent points along with written recommendations. Thank you for your time and prompt response regarding the house inspection.
- J.O., November 2015
Leonard was very friendly, knowledgable and responsive! Thank you for making this a quick and painless step in the home buying process!
- S.J., November 2015
You went over and above explaining in full detail and making us feel comfortable to ask questions. We know your time is valuable and you still stayed longer then we imagined to make sure we all understood correctly. Thank you for the tips and advice. You're the best!!
- A.B., November 2015
We were very pleased with the thoroughness of the inspection, Len's professionalism and knowledge base. We feel very confident in his assessments and recommendations.
- B.H., October 2015
Len was amazing, he took the time to explain as we worked through the inspection. I feel confident that the house is well made and safe. I will be able to care for my home and be a better home owner as I now know what jobs need to be worked through to keep the home in good condition. I love the report, items are well explained and will be a good reference for me. Thanks again, Alison
- A.V., October 2015
Len is extremely thorough, always on time, respectful and honest. I have used him twice, referred him and will continue to acquire his services with future property purchases. Thank you Len for your organized and thorough inspection reports, all your suggestions were taken into serious consideration and/or applied to make our house a warm, safe, inviting home:) Cheers, -S
- S.S., October 2015
Very grateful for your attention to detail, common sence approach, and clear explanations.
- K.W., September 2015
Leonard was great he answered every question we had for him. He was very professional
- D.D., September 2015
I am very pleased with the concentrated effort you displayed to thoroughly carry out a process that exposed faulty and below acceptable levels of workmanship by some of these tradesmen. You took me into areas of concerns that would have gone unnoticed by the untrained eyes, to detect sub par level of workmanship. Also thank you for advises not only on how to maintain certain levels and upkeep of our new home, but also, to implement certain pro-active measures that will eliminate or minimize future problems that may incur, regarding building maintenance and deterioration. Thanks a million times over. Cheers mate!
- N.J., Mississuaga ON, August 2015
We have purchased three homes over the past thirty years and Len is the best home inspector that we have ever used. Len is extremely thorough and extremely knowledgeable. As we moved our way through the inspection, he made suggestions throughout, recommending products and strategies to correct all minor and major deficiencies in the house. This was most helpful. Len has our unqualified endorsement. Anyone making a significant purchase like a house would be very wise to use his professional services. Brian and Lesley Golden
- L.G., August 2015
My girlfriend and I had two house inspections performed by Len. With his information we made a very good decision in walking away from one home. Luckily the second home he inspected for us was immaculate and he confirmed what we assumed. His knowledge and expertise allows you to be confident in any home buying or selling decision. He is professional, charismatic and a great human being. I highly recommend this man's business.
- L.C., August 2015
We cannot even say how much we appreciated working with Len. It was both a pleasure and a wealth of fascinating lessons! Len does it all. Where he sees maintenance issues, he instructs thoroughly. Where he finds problems, he digs for the details, and gives a clear summary of what is needed. We learned more about our house than we might have after 10 years of ownership, and all this was before the deal closed! We had fallen in love with the house quickly, but Len gave us such excellent service that we knew we had done our due diligence in the biggest purchase of our lives.
- E.G., August 2015
Leonard was great to work with; so completely knowledgeable and committed. He also taught us the details of our house, and how to care for it in the long run! He stayed focused through a long and detailed survey, and followed through immediately when something was difficult to assess. Our report arrived at midnight, the same day after an inspection that started at 9 am, and lasted until 6 pm. We enjoyed Leonard and the entire process.
- A.R., August 2015
Hello Len; My wife and I just wanted to thank you for the inspection the other day on the bridge water home. We found you to be extremely knowledgeable and professional as well as very personable and approachable. This home is a large investment to our family and a massive upgrade from our current home. We immediately felt a sigh of relief when you said you felt it a good, safe home. We also took the information provided and will formulate a plan to rectify the issues mentioned. My wife stated that she felt that she learnt much from you, and came away much more confident in the purchase. I would strongly recommend you and your expertise to my friends, family and clients, and I would most certainly employ your services in the future. Many thanks and warmest regards The Uppers
- M.U., July 2015
Leonard is great to work with! We had a lot of fun with him, and he helped us discover our new home. It didn't feel that he was there to find the problems, but in fact pointing out features of our new home. He has a great sense of humour and made the experience not as stressful. We would highly recommend his professional and knowledgable service to all
- M.G., July 2015
Len not only identifies issues, he proposes solutions. He confirmed my suspicions that our cottage is a leaky, rotten, moldy bug infested pile of mulch. Len is extremely thorough.
- B.M., July 2015
Len did a very thorough and honest assessment of the property we purchased. Very helpful and useful tips for simple upkeep on the property and what hazards to be aware of. Very satisfied with the inspection and would recommend Len to anyone purchasing a home.
- J.B., July 2015
We were very grateful for how thorough you were. And we really appreciate all of your suggestions for making our repairs. We would definitely let others know about you. We wish you all the best!
- L.D., July 2015
I thought you were very thorough and appreciated all of the recommendations and comments during your inspection.
- D.R., July 2015
Hello, Len! Thanks again for your inspection! I would certainly recommend you to someone else too. I ended up not going with that unit I had you inspect on Dorchester.I actually just finished finalizing another house, but it was very competitive and I had to act quickly, so I went without the inspection. It was a newer home though, hopefully that doesn't come back to bite me. Anyhow, thanks again, Len, I thought you were very thorough and did an excellent job explaining everything!
- G.M., July 2015
We have hired Len twice for home inspections--on the same house. We had a very long closing (almost a year) so wanted a follow-up inspection just before closing. In between the two inspections there was a burst water pipe and flooring damage on the ground floor and Len checked in on the quality of the remediation work being done. It was very reassuring to get Len's thumbs-up on the two inspections and on the interim check-up. Len's level of detail and the background expertise it reflects are truly remarkable. The amount of time he spent reflected real professionalism, and commitment to the customer. His reports were of the highest quality and contain valuable ongoing resources for us. The first report recommended some fixes by the vendor before we firmed up the offer. The vendors were somewhat resistant until we sent them a copy of the report, whereupon they followed through right away. Top notch, reliable service-and a sense of humour. I'd rate him a 12/10 if it were possible.
- F.O., July 2015
Leonard Inkster was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. His report was thorough, well-organized with pertinent pictures, which was most appreciated. We would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
- B.H., June 2015
Appreciated the input and advice on repairs and maintenance as we did the inspectioin.
- J.B., June 2015
Len: Thank you so much for putting our minds at ease with regards to our new home. With two small children, we don't have the time or money to worry about major fixes in our home. Your advice and expertise made us feel that we were in fact making the right decision about this move. Thank you so much. We'll be in touch Craig, Carrie, Leo and Nora
- C.M., June 2015
Len performed his inspection on our prospective property, with utmost professionalism and diligence. He was very thorough with his findings and we were absolutely impressed with his manner and style in performing our house inspection. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a qualified house inspector.
- B.S., June 2015

- M.C., June 2015
Super professional and pleasant to deal with.
- C.J., May 2015

- K.C., May 2015
Mr.Inkster is an asset for any person buying or selling their home. He is experienced and knowledgeable in his profession and I would not hesitate to rely on him in the future.
- L.W., Burlington ON, April 2015
Len is well versed and knowledgable on what he's doing up to the last detail!
- M.R., April 2015
This is the 7th house that I buy and Len's inspection work is head and shoulders above any other inspection that I had done. His report is really a personalized user's manual. My wife, real estate agent and I learnt a lot on heritage home though our discussions with Len. Thank you!
- M.T., April 2015
During the spring of 2014 my wife & I were looking to buy a rental property. He helped us avoid one property and assisted us in our decision to purchase another. His attention to detail, and his thoroughness, set him apart, to us. In January 2015 our own home, that we have lived in since 2001, suffered a fire in the attic. Lots of water damage, from a fairly small fire. After weeks of frustration with the emergency crew and our insurance adjuster, I realized that I needed to take the bull by the horns. I called Len, to do an inspection of our home, and help us identify what our priorities should be with this mess. This has been my smartest move. Len identified issues that I had not considered, and relieved us of worries we need not have. Most of all, his detailed reporting and professional reports, gave me what I needed to back up arguments with my adjuster. Len has been there for us throughout, this stressful ordeal. Thank- you Len. You are truly a foul weather friend, fighting for the little guy. SA
- L.A., Port Robinson ON, April 2015
thank you for an inspection that to me was 100 percent I appreciate the work effort and professionalism applied. thanks Ron Caldow.
- R.C., March 2015
Very professional. Makes you feel confident about the report. Suggestings ways to fix the small things even provide an estimate of how much it will cost.
- C.S., Cambridge ON, November 2014
Leonard you were very detailed on explaining everything. I would definitely use you again. I will recommend you to everyone I know. Thanks Dale
- D.A., October 2014
Extremely thorough inspection with a lot of helpful hints and information about repairs and maintenance.
- P.T., August 2014
Leonard provided a thorough honest and professional assessment of the septic system for a pre-purchase inspection on an older home. I will use his services in the future without hesitation. Thank you again Len.
- D.C., July 2014
Len was extremely professional from the start to completion of his inspection. What immediately created a positive perception was his respect for the customer, by (1) arriving on time (2) bringing another pair of shoes, to ensure he doesn't dirty my floors/ carpets. Len, had also exceeded my expectations by going above and beyond. He took the time to explain me all details of what he was inspecting and what the possible impacts it could have on me as the owner. We spent about 4 hours together, which was definitely longer than anticipated, but he was friendly, professional, and patient through out the whole process. Just a wonderful and informative consultation. Vee
- V.G., July 2014
Len, I can't thank you enough for the thorough and exhaustive inspection you conducted at 3170 Ridgemount Rd, Stevensville. You took the time to explain what you were doing and why, which was enlightening for someone inexperienced with Septic and Cistern Systems. Your report was detailed , informative and provided useful information re the operation and maintenance and measures to keep the system healthy. I would gladly and highly recommend you for any further investigations including home inspections. Thank you and Cheers C Walter
- C.W., July 2014
Thank you Len for the straightforward, no nonsense report that was very clear and informative. I will gladly refer you if anyone is looking for inspections. Regards, Chris
- C.W., July 2014
Len, After seeing you at work, I couldn't imagine having the nerve to buy a house without having you inspect it first. Thank you ! Bob

- E.L., April 2014
Very thorough. His findings helped us to steer clear of one property that we might otherwise have purchased. The next one was a gem, but he still gave good advice on what should be done once we owned it.
- L.A., Port Robinson ON, April 2014
Len did a great and thorough job. Very knowledgeable and willingly shared his expertise.

- K.W., February 2014
Excellent job Leonard, thanks Jason
- J.W., February 2014
For a first time home buyer it was a great experience! Leonard went above and beyond to ensure that I was fully aware of any issues and how to deal with them. He was very knowledgeable and professional with his assessment and conduct. I had a great time learning about all the things that only an expert would know to look for. thank you very much for the time and effort you put into my house inspection, I look forward to the next time!
- M.P., October 2013
As the saying goes, Rome was not built in a day. A proper home inspection takes time to inspect everything inside and outside the house. Leonard spent a good 3.5 hours looking at the property I was thinking of purchasing. I did tag along with him during part of the inspection. I was extremely impressed by the amount of time spent in every room testing appliances, wall plugs, telephone-jacks etc. Outside he spent a considerable time walking along each wall checking for cavities etc. When it came to the electrical panel, he took the covers off and inspected every wire. A regular home owner would have just glanced at it and immediately put the covers back on saying "it looks OK". At the end of his lengthy inspection, Len produced an 85 page documents highlighting everything he found irrespective of the severity. I am extremely pleased that I selected him to complete my home inspection, because I do not think I could have got a better person anywhere. Imre Csepreghi Mississauga, Ontario

Very thorough, meticulous, knowledgeable and professional.
- G.S., July 2013
Excellent and professional service. As we were being relocated we had a short window to buy a house and have a home inspection completed, and Len really came through for us. He was hands down the most thorough, knowledgeable, and investigative Home Inspector we have ever hired. Thanks for everything Len!
- B.M., July 2013
Leonard, you did a wonderful job in going through the minute details during home inspection and making us really comfortable during the process. Thanks!
- S.T., July 2013
I found Len to be excellent. He was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He explained everything that would be in the report very clearly to me. He even pointed out some issues that wouldn't appear in the home inspection report but should be updated if I wanted to meet current building code for better safety. Overall I would recommend Len to anyone who needs a home inspection carried out.
- S.L., July 2013
Thanks for the thorough inspection, glad we found someone with such an abundance of knowledge!

- N.D., June 2013
We found ourselves in a difficult situation when we were closing deal on a house on Friday and needed a home inspector to examine the house asap so we can return to our home 500km away. Len was recommended to us and he on a very short notice (on Saturday!) provided the inspection. This is our sixths house in about 40 years so we have certain experience with selling and buying properties spanning territory from Montreal to Vancouver. I can in confidence say that Len was the best of all inspectors I have been, so far, dealing with. As a true professional he delivered the project on time, within a reasonable budget and in a top quality. I found Len to be a top professional yet communicating with the client in laymen's terms. His reporting system is excellent and serves as a great reference for property assessment and future maintenance. If you are looking for a top quality home inspection Len will not disappoint you.
- G.T., Kanata ON, April 2013
You were my first home inspector ever..and if you are an example of what an inspector should do..I was in excellent safe hands..thankyou for taking the time to explain in detail to a novice like myself, you are an amazing professional and an amazing person, glad you crossed my path in life,putting me at ease at what I need to do, and not do in my new home.If you are an example of Professionals in Niagara falls then I am in safe secure hands, and am glad to be part of the community. First Class job Len..Thanks again. Pat O'Reilly
