A message from Virginia Association of Real Estate Inspectors -VAREI
VAREI needs the support (membership & dues) of all Virginia Home Inspectors (NACHI, ASHI, NAHI, Independent) to continue its work in Richmond. VAREI officers volunteer (no pay and even loose work) their time to represent you in Richmond but the lobbyists do not ($$).
If you haven’t joined yet, do so today and support VAREI’s efforts in Richmond.
I have attached a letter from VAREI’s President, David Rushton explaining the items below in greater detail. VAREI Update to Virginia Home Inspectors.pdf (205 KB)
Mandatory licensing is coming: The Virginia Association of Realtors (VAR) will be submitting a bill this January to require mandatory licensing of all home inspectors working in Virginia. VAREI’s retired lobbyist (working as a consultant until the new lobbyist is up to speed) is in contact with VAR’s representative and working along with VAREI’s Board of Directors to word the bill to minimize the impact it will have on Virginia home inspectors.
New construction inspection training module:** Several VAREI officers have been working directly with Virginia DPOR and the Home Builders Association on your behalf to develop a palatable Education Module required by HB2103.
Thanks for you attention,
