Something You Should Know
The state of California does not require a license for home inspectors, so it is important that the home inspector you hire be a master home inspector and not just a member of a club or an association. The California Trade practice act (Chapter 338) was enacted in 1996. The law in California prohibits unethical home inspection practices, including repairing properties that home inspectors have inspected in the previous 12 months. The law encourages courts to consider the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of ASHI and the California Real Estate Inspection Association. We abide by a set of standards of practices and code of ethics that require professionalism and attention to detail. Our home and property inspections exceed all National Home Inspection Associations Clubs and organizations.
