It’s true. The carriers have never been more predatory than they are now, and FL homeowners are left with the tab. This is compounded by a vague Inspection form that leaves the Inspector to interpret it. There is a huge disparity in how FL Home Inspectors perform the task, ranging from “nothing to see here” all the way to “full home inspection.”

We finally have a FLDBPR-approved set of standards though, and an upcoming course at InterNACHIs House of Horrors in Weston, FL. The course is titled, “Making 4-Points Work for You”, counts for 8 CEs, includes guidance on deficiencies, and will completely standardize 4-Points in FL. Friday, 7/26/24, 8:30-- 5:30. The class should be up on the events page and in the newsletter soon. Don’t settle when we finally have solutions.

Will we also have a FLDBPR-approved online course coming as well?

That would be extremely useful :+1:
