There are no federal laws governing home inspectors. We are regulated only by the individual states. Unfortunately, the State of Florida is one of just a few remaining states that has yet to regulate the home inspection business – how can you be sure that your inspector is adequately qualified, experienced, and trustworthy? One way is through professional home inspector associations. A few of them require minimum training, education, experience, and adherence to ethical standards – at least one widely known organization merely requires home inspection candidates to take a very simple on-line test, in the comfort of their homes, and possibly with someone else actually taking the test for them. Once they easily pass the on-line test, they mail in a check to become an instant home inspector. Be very carefull when scrutinizing your home inspectors, and be sure to check out the individual associations to evaluate their individual requirements. To be safe, you can't go wrong by ensuring that your home inspector is a Certified Member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).
