OK, (deep breathe)
I am currently in the process of getting my license since the recent legislation change on (06/01/2021)
Here is the 8 page application w/ $250 Fee
Here is the information on what a Peer Review entails.
Here Is the Step by step FAQ’s regarding the new legislation.
and Here are my thoughts after talking to 2 local guys who have been in the industry over 10 years and decided to retire rather than go through this ridiculous application process.
I am stubborn and I am determined to contribute to keeping contractors, realtors, and other home inspectors accountably for good service. I come from a construction background and 60% of my business was fixing other “professional work”. Columbus is filled with house flippers that are cutting corners, neglecting safety, and taking advantage of the public. I will do what I can to contribute to my community. I know it feels like this new legislation is rigged against independent inspectors, and maybe it is, but that just gets a hotter fire burning in me to stick it to the man.
I have my NHIE (exam) schedule for the end of this month… I’ve paid the fee for that too ($225).
Please check in as often as you would like for updates on the process and what i have learned along the way.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me thus far and for the continued support to come.
Let’s go get em’ boys.
