Yesterday I spoke with a potential client concerning a letter he had received from his insurance agent here in Florida, I have not seen this letter, but the information I’ve gathered is that this is a Citizens insurance company requirement for roof condition certification, this I understand. The agent provided a list of three companies to provide this service, this I see as maybe a means in assisting the client in locating someone. However, the agent provided to the home owner Citizens form CIT RCF-1 11 08 to be completed.
This is where I need some clarification, CIT RCF-1 11 08 does not list Florida licensed home inspectors as “qualified” to complete this form.
Looking into the Citizens web site I cannot find this form, the agent is non-responsive, however I do find a Roof Condition Certification form (CIT RCF-1 02 11) (rev.) That indeed has Licensed home inspectors listed as qualified. Is the agent using an out dated form?
The Citizens form CIT RCF- 1 02 11 lists Florida home inspectors as must be licensed and a member of (one of the three) ASHI, FABI or the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI) . The form does not list the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI).
I’m looking for some clarification, first question why would the agent apparently be using the wrong form ( are the two forms still accepted?)and two why is Citizens not using the complete proper name for InterNACHI ( again are there two?)
Same thing. Our domain is NACHI.org
Hi David… the other form 1 11 08 is still being accepted. We use it but, our inspector is a contractor as well as a home inspector etc.
The new form 1 2 11 just added the verbiage to allow a home inspector who belongs to a particular professional association to fill it out.
they both have the same content. I would just use the new one
I was also informed that you have to put your NACHI member number on the form as well.
Correct. We now have 4 insurance companies in FL that demand your InterNACHI ID#.
I have that form with a place for your NACHI number, if anyone wants it, just e mail me.
