Understand – Me thinks that this is too short of a time window. As a contractor doing HI’s this would not be a problem esp if he had a signed contract that said two or three months so that the work would start after closing
BTW thanks for the post
This looks like another Florida mess
I can see a lot of tax money being spent on wind that will not save their home and we get a higher cost of doing business that we will pass on to our clients
No, we do not get screwed but our clients do
I have already sent off my email and Monday some letters – Thinking about an office visit or parking lot if that is what it takes
Thanks again for your thought and have a good weekend with yours
Are you kidding me Greg. Someone out there has a buddy who will get the contract. They will sub-contract it. Follow the money trail. But several guys have friends who want the sub-contracting. They will fight about it and it will die again.
Let it be known that this is a public thread and there are organizations outside of NACHI that are monitoring this thread.
I encourage those outside of NACHI to actiively participate by documenting their feelings about the lastest bill.
It is now time to let the NACHI membership know what ASHI, FABI, and NAHI inspectors and their elected leadership plan on doing with this latest bill.
Recent meetings over the past few months with the ASHI, FABI, and NAHI leadership left me with the hope that honest and open comminucation would allow the inspection industry to come together for the greater cause.
I now challenge those members of the coalition to address the NACHI membership whether they are supporting or not supporting this bill as written and why.
I was recently questioned as to who helped Senator Wise draft the latest bill.
Close to 1500 Florida NACHI inspectors would like to know.
In an odd twist, should not a HI whom is licensed under Part I of this bill be “added” to the list of other exempted licensed professionals in Part III along with contractors, appraisers, etc. for the Wind Mitigation license.
That is the problem with these succotash type bills. It is a convoluted mix mash of requirements. I’m sure a good Constitutional lawyer would have a field day with it.
The Bill will put those out of business on January 1, 2009, IF they were not in business by June 30, 2004 unless they get 120 hours of education. It appears the examination will not have to be complied with if you were in business prior to July 1, 2004.
To be a mold inspector, the grandfathering requires documented experience since 2003. AND you can’t remediate a property you inspected for 12 months. Seems like they left that out on the HI side.
I would like to thank everyone who contacted me over the weekend. Your solitude is much appreciated.
