Yes and no. The laws are always changing. Although there is regulation for certified home inspectors, not all home inspectors are required to be certified. There are several “official” inspection associations, but no mandatory regulatory board.
I am a current member in good standing of the InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors). InterNACHI is the world’s largest, non-profit inspection association which has established strict Standards of Practice and a Home Inspector Code of Ethics. Certified home inspectors are not affiliated with any real estate agent, agency, or broker. We do not consult with the property seller in any way
We work for you and you only and keep only your interest in mind when performing an inspection!
