Do your homework when hiring a home inspector!!!

State licensing and certification is VOLUNTARY in the state of Virginia…anyone can start a home inspection business and claim to be a Home Inspector!

Be sure to ask several questions when hiring someone to inspect your home:

  1. Are you state certified and fully licensed through the state of Virginia? ALL STATE CERTIFIED INSPECTORS CAN BE FOUND ON DPOR website.
  2. Are you affiliated with a professional organization, such as ASHI? (Please note: There are different certification levels in professional organizations. For example, in order to be a CERTIFIED INSPECTOR for ASHI, an inspector must have completed a minimum number of inspections and passed their exam.)
  3. Can I see a copy of your home inspection report?
  4. Is inspecting homes your full-time job?
  5. Are you insured with professional and general liability?
  6. Do you carry Errors & Omissions insurance?
  7. Do you provide a computer generated inspection report with digital pictures?
  8. Do you provide online access to inspection report with ability to forward report to others?
  9. Will you provide us with an estimated cost of repairs or replacements?

These are a few sample questions to ask when hiring a home inspector. The more informed you are, the better choice you can make when hiring an inspector to meet your needs.
