Thanks for the quick reply Joe but now I have another question.
NACHI does not distinguish between types of members - full member having completed 100 inspections - not a full member not completed 100 inspections. But it seems the Pa. Association of Realtors and the Pennsylvania Home Inspectors Coalition do distinguish.
Additionally Senate Bill 1032 states that a home inspector needs to belong to a national association that among other things requires its members to complete 100 inspections before it can classify that member as a full member.
Nachi doesn't distinguish so does it (NACHI) meet the above requirement?
Is it a state requirement that I provide the compliance form or only a requirement of the Association of Realtors and the Coalition of Inspectors?
If I provide the Compliance form what do I check? I have not done 100 inspections and if I check I am not a full member I need to be supervised by a full member - which poses a problem since I am a one man operation.
I don't want to panic but I have invested a considerable amount of time and money so far and I relied on NACHI to help me make sure I dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's. Am I breaking state law or sticking my neck out by doing inspections without providing the Compliance Form?
And if I provide the form how can I check I am a full member - I can't just because NACHI doesn't distinguish.
I appreciate your help on this.
