Our 2007 Georgia General Assembly is in session. One of the items that will be presented again for consideration is a bill to license home inspectors. Home inspectors in Georgia are unregulated with the exception of a couple of sentences about the inspection and reporting of the inspection. That is bound to change - this year - or in the near future. It is likely that home inspectors will be regulated in a manner similar to real estate appraisers, real estate agents, and home builders.
If you have been sitting on the fence - thinking about getting into the home inspection business - you should consider it now before the legislation takes place to insure that you will be able to take advantage of any "grandfather" provisions that a new law might provide. AREA will help keep you posted on this important issue.
