First, thank you to all of you who regularly contribute to this board! I’m preparing to start my inspection business and I have found the answers to dozens of questions I’ve had by searching through old posts here. That said, I did have a couple questions I’d appreciate anyones imput on.
First, after testing out several software options I believe I’ve decided to use Tap Inspect, at least at first, and I was wondering if anyone has any advice on putting disclaimers or the scope on the report? I don’t know if its best to just copy that from the interNACHI sop (I will already use their agreement) or if those that include them typically write their own? I know some software includes some of this but I don’t think it makes sense for me to buy an expensive software when starting out.
Second, I am located near Dayton, OH and was wondering if anyone has any insight on the licensing program in Ohio. I shaddowed a local inspector a few times this summer and his advice was to get certified here and not to wait on the state. But, should I go ahead and take the NHIE? I’ve herad great things aboput it on here… and I dont want to waste my time if I wont end up having to take it. Or is there anything else I should be doing in the meantime?
