So, I was contacted by an attorney regarding an inspection conducted in July 2010. Where, the attorney is stating that I did not exclude, in writing, a portable generator and the I am in violation of Florida 468, Chaper XV regarding Disclosure and Home Inspection Report.
This attorney seems to have a hard on for this and is advising her Clients to litigate.
I contacted the DBPR regarding the issue and was told by Richard Morrison, Executive Director, Home Inspection Licensing that this would fall under unlicensed activity and therefore would not be considered in violation of the Statute.
The attorney is stating that only portions of the Statute were included in HB 713 therefore the inspection was conducted in violation of Florida law and the amendment did not include Disclosure and report content.
Nick…we had better circle the wagons as this will surely go to court and could have dire consequences for every inspection conducted between July 2010 and July 2011 where the inspection company or inspector did not possess professional license.
