Kansas Realtors Introduce Licensing

(Dan Bowers, CMI, ACI) #1

Tonight we got a copy of the Kansas City Board of Realtors New Letter from today.

Their legislative director made this announcement …

Home Inspector Licensure: Finally, legislation was introduced this week to require all home inspectors operating in the state of Kansas to be licensed and be subject to various consumer protections (just like every other industry professional who works with customers in real estate transactions).

Kansas regulated the home inspection industry from 2009 until 2013 when Kansas Governor Sam Brownback vetoed an extension of the law.
This legislation is supported by consumer advocates, professional home inspectors and REALTORS® and would be a major step forward in protecting consumers from receiving home inspection services from unqualified individuals who have no professional training and have not undergone criminal background checks.

As with all other issues, KCRAR will keep its members posted on its progress on this issue during the 2019 Legislative Session.

Guessing the REA’s are holding hands with certain ASHI members cause the rest of us have NOT heard about this.
