What is a Pre-Delivery Inspection?
The Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) serves two purposes:
- It’s an opportunity for us to educate you about how to operate your new home to ensure it runs smoothly and efficiently and become familiar with your new home.
- It allows us to assess and document any outstanding, incomplete or possibly damaged items in or outside the home.
Once we have received all of the necessary documentation for your firm Agreement of Purchase and Sale, an Ironstone representative will contact you to confirm the scheduling of the PDI appointment.
Your PDI will take place approximately one week prior to the Occupancy Date.
After the PDI is complete, you will receive both the Pre-Delivery Inspection Sign-off Sheet, as well as your Tarion Certificate of Completion and Possession, by email.
PDI’s are conducted Monday – Friday, during regular business hours.
Due to the detailed nature of the PDI, only the purchasers listed on the Agreement of Purchase and Sale may attend the PDI. No friends, family, children, realtors, home inspectors, or guests may attend.
If you are unable to attend the PDI, you can assign a Designate to complete the inspection on your behalf. This form is available upon request from our Ironstone Representative and must be completed and returned to us prior to the PDI appointment.
For more information, please visit the Tarion Website and view PDI Checklist.
What is a PDI sign off - closing?
The Closing and PDI Sign-off appointment date is provided to you in the Welcome Letter previously emailed to you from Ironstone.
Closing & PDI Sign-off appointments are scheduled on the Occupancy Date, during regular business hours.
During this appointment, the Ironstone PDI Representative will review any deficiencies that were noted during the Pre-Delivery Inspection and will sign-off all items that have now been completed.
There may be items which are not completed prior to your closing date including seasonal items such as final grading, sod, driveway, exterior painting, etc. If your Occupancy date takes place in the fall or winter months, seasonal items will be scheduled as quickly as possible during the spring/summer months.
Only the purchasers listed on the Agreement of Purchase and Sale may attend the PDI. No friends, family, children, realtors, home inspectors, or guests may attend.
If you are unable to attend the Closing & Sign-off appointment, you can assign a Designate to complete the appointment on your behalf. This form is available upon request from our Ironstone Representative and must be completed and returned to us prior to the PDI Sign-off appointment.
