Some of you may or may not know, but a Fabi member, Mr. Robert Sheppard had made a couple of trips to the capital to discuss wind mitigation concerns with the insurance people. He is also planning on making a third.
I first want to say that I admire his ambition and also have great respect for Mr. Sheppard. He is cordial in person, and has been nothing but helpful to me. This post is by no means an effort to belittle him, but it could affect a source of my income, so in that respect it directly affects me.
I do however want to shine a light on the fact that he is taking this issue in his own hands and has been discussing with insurance people, issues or inaccuracies with the form itself.
He is essentially representing all of us who perform these, and depend on them as part of our income.
Since wind mitigations are a part of all home inspectors in FL, I thought that those in this organization should be made aware, in the event you had any questions.
Is he willing to share any information he has available that could effect all home inspectors, regardless of what group they belong to? What actual information does he have? Supposedly, people are upset and talk has been made about how many of the forms are not done properly or their inaccurate. Mention that these inspections could be taken away from inspectors because we are not competent.
So Mr.Sheppard, would you be willing to discuss the issue at hand with this Org, since it contains the largest majority of inspectors in the state?
I for one enjoy the added benefit of this add on inspection. Some of you almost depend on them solely for your income. If someone you don’t know is discussing these inspections and the errors with them to the companies that regulate them, shouldn’t you be aware?
