COVID 19 Inspection Policy and Assistance

Print this pageEmail this to someone

Depreciation Reports are services that cannot be done entirely from home. We look forward to working with all our partners and their clients to operate in the safest manner during this outbreak, and this policy is outlined here.

With the COVID-19 impacting the general economy, we have had to make some adjustments. As the head of the company, Jeremy Bramwell is currently working from the Downtown Vancouver office. Other staff and contractors are working from their home. All phone and email connections are in place to support remote work sites.

The safety of our clients is our main concern.

  • We are requesting all data in advance so that our interaction with people at the time of inspection is minimized. We use surveys prior to inspection to gather data.
  • We are instituting short web based pre-inspection meetings to discuss data received to date, as well as video conferencing draft meetings so the council members do not have to be in the same room while going over the report.
  • Where unit inspections are required, we are asking the occupants to just stay in the hall or remain in one room when we inspect the decks or roofs, the only areas typically we would inspect.
  • We are maintaining social distancing throughout the whole inspection.
  • We will not enter a unit where someone may be sick or is self isolating after travel or at request of health authorities.
  • Staff who are self isolating will not be permitted to go to inspections.
  • When doing inspection within common rooms, we request that the residents be told that Strata Reserve Planning will be there, and the room be empty so we can complete the inspection in as little time as possible, and in the most safe manner.

Travel outside the Lower Mainland, Sea to Sky (Squamish) or Greater Victoria areas is not permitted.

Marketing is now restricted to phone, webinars, email or postage.

Completing Depreciation Reports to give peace of mind to yourselves, potential buyers  and Insurance firms is important, and we believe short of a government order to close down, this policy is a reasonable solution to meet our clients needs.

Financial Assistance

We also understand that the COVID-19 pandemic is putting financial strains on Owners and Strata Corporations.  If you are required to get a Depreciation Report, as of March 15, 2020, we have a 15% Discount in place for new Strata Corporation Clients to the end of April 2020.
