Kansas Home Inspectors Professional Competence and Financial Responsibility Act
House Bill 2260 revises several provisions of the Kansas Home Inspectors Professional Competence and Financial Responsibility Act. This legislation will become effective upon its publication in the Kansas Statute Book.
Signed by the governor on April 23, 2009.
As an inspector in Kansas, I have just lost several constitutional rights to help protect the public. I now have to abide by laws created by lawmakers who are real estate agents. I will have to abide by home inspection board rules and regulations. I will no longer be able to provide detailed inspections; I will be limited on what I can and cannot inspect “by law”. I will have to take tests, most of which have nothing to do with a home inspection and pay several fees and insurance requirements that will push prices of inspections higher, out of reach of most first time home buyers. Appraisers, insurance agents, and real estate agents are all gearing up to perform “home assessments”. It is a true travesty that governments are listening to special interest groups and passing laws for the benefit of the groups only. I thought the government works for me; I now work for the governement, under their rules, regulations, and have to pay taxes for their benefit. The freedoms of all Americans are dwindling, and at a record rate. I cannot understand how a Governor, who is going to work for the federal government, can sign into law these regulations, introduced by real estate agents, so that “these business people” can sell homes, to only fill their pockets with funds, and not have inspectors around to mess it all up. I tried. We lost. I have no choice but to join this new government society. My rights, as an American, are few.
