They need to come up with a workable Wind Mit inspection form that does not require the birth weight of the homeowner and the passenger list for the Titanic.

This looks like it goes into effect June 1st

As I read it:

A contractor must have employed all inspectors, and not as subs. A contractor can not even use an employee leasing company as I see it. Any employee will have to have training/experience to do them. This is great for the little guy and is a swift kick to the big guy.

Home inspectors(state licensed) with 3 hours of training will be allowed to do them also.
