Our Story

For more than 30 years, our dedicated team at National Property Inspections, Inc. has been helping thousands of inspectors excel in the property inspection industry. Founded in 1987 by Roland Bates, NPI is the first home and commercial inspection franchise opportunity in North America. We know the business inside and out, and we have the tools and expertise to help you get started on the path to success. Our franchisees are more than property inspectors. They're business owners.

In 1999, National Property Inspections, Inc. launched Global Property Inspections (GPI) in Canada. As one of the first inspection franchises in Canada, we've been a leader in the industry for nearly 20 years.

At NPI, diversification is central to our business plan, so you'll always have a marketable skill. NPI franchisees are trained to offer more than 20 types of services, including residential, commercial, field service and builder’s warranty inspections. In addition, our National Accounts department refers commercial inspection work from international clients directly to franchisees.
