On July 1, 2004 a new law llimits the period of time that any civil action can be taken against a home inspector for negligence . The new law (Act No. 437, House Bill No. 1430) limits the time to one year from the date of the inspection.

That is great. here in NC I just found out that if the licensing board gets a complaint, they do a COMPLETE inspection as a follow-up. If the complaint is in the crawl, they will still look in the attic and elsewhere. scary!!

That sounds silly.


If I was a homeowner I would complain automatically.

I get a follow up inspection for free and if the 2nd guy in finds an issue, I sue the first guy!

Go Louisiana! That’s the first good news from my state that I have heard in a while.

How does this new law affect the Errors and Omissions insurance rates in Louisiana? They should go way down now with this new limited liability.


Anyone?

The law just recently passed and the rates have not changed that I am aware of.
