I hope legislators understand that any license is a basic, minimum requirement. Home inspector licensing is just that, and that is what the agents want; soft, basic, say-nothing reports, so they can sell sub-par properties to unsuspecting home buyers. Then, since the home inspectors are required to have insurance, any issues that arise fall back upon the home inspectors. With no state home building standards, anything can be reported as a defect, or none at all.
That is what the RE’s want. Home buyers will loose big time, and look to the capitol to see who voted in this farce.
Note to lawmakers of Missouri: check to see who is in office now in Kansas, and see who is not, that voted on home inspection laws in Kansas. Most were voted out of office since home inspection laws started. Even the Governor of Kansas at the time resigned just days after signing the bill into law. Senator Wysong resigned. They all saw the writing on the wall.
Lawmakers in Missouri should also take notice. What is more important; your campaign funds or the people of Missouri?
