Great opportunity…but …this is very much like whats happening in some areas of Canada - a shift of liabilty onto the lowly home inspector, and off the backs of the local government and taxpayers.

But certainly this is an opportunity for those willing to take that chance!

Additionally, is there a local non-compete or operation of your home inspection business clause within that area. This is often a condition required in some contracts that I have reviewed.
