About 4 years ago B.C. became the first Province in Canada to license home inspectors, and now its looking at increasing licensing requirements.
Right now, home inspectors have to jump through some hoops before they get a license.
The current requirements include:
- Must meet certain education requirements,
- have the right training,
- pass at least one peer-test inspection review
- meet continuing education requirements
The Minister Responsible for Housing was asked to look at the qualification and training requirements for licensed home inspectors. It’s an effort to give home buyers extra protection.
The BC Govt is asking for feedback from the public and from industry and home-inspection professionals through two on line surveys.
