Cuenca Home Inspections is dedicated in providing a thorough, non- bias home inspection that assists and educates our clients whether you’re buying or renting.


Those of you who have rented or bought a property outside of your home country know of the many surprises that come along with living internationally.  My goal is to help your renting or buying experience to be as stress free  as possible. 


My inspection will target the functionality of all the operating systems and safety aspects of the property.


I will personally perform a professional  inspection of the property and supply a detailed briefing (commentary) of any items of concern along with  photos and recommendations .

After finding a house in Cuenca that seemed to meet all my needs, I realized that I'd fallen for it with my heart but didn't know if my head would follow. For all I knew, it could have been in terrible shape. I'd heard about too many bad situations and that the average gringo moved three times before settling down here. I didn't want to move again. James came over on short notice, checked water, electricity, security, calefon, etc., and made a list of needed repairs and changes, all of which my landlords took care of. I've been in the house about six weeks now, and thanks to James' help, my head agrees that it's the right place for me.
