Fla. Home Inspectors Must Now Have State License

Fla. Home Inspectors Must Now Have State License

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Home inspector Dave Sorge was on the job today with another home inspection to complete. 

Five years ago when he started "Inspect -it 1st," his industry was unregulated and tainted by shoddy home inspections. "The free market weeded out those guys that don't belong," he said. 

And a new law that makes every inspector get a state license, will make it even more difficult for a bad inspector to remain in business, he said.  "Is licensing really the cure for substandard performance? We'll see," he said. 

But the grandfathering of longtime inspectors, Sorge said, allows inspectors to be licensed with the most minimum qualifications.

"You could conceivably get a home inspector who has never performed a home inspection yet is qualified and licensed," said Sorge.
