Montana Regulation Announcement

Montana has recently passed SB 269, requiring mandatory registration of home inspectors in Montana. The new law will take effect on January 1, 2020. SB 269 will require that home inspectors register with the Department of Labor and Industry. The following requirements are the criteria for registrants in Montana:

• Successful completion of 40 hours of comprehensive home inspection training approved by the Department, or a passing grade on an approved national home inspection examination;
• Membership in an approved national association;
• Carry liability insurance, and a minimum of 100,000 errors and omissions insurance; and
• Obtain personal workers’ compensation coverage or an independent contractor exemption certificate (ICEC)

Check out our Montana Page for more information.

InterNACHI will be working closely with the departments Registration Section Manager to have our education and association approved by the state. Stay tuned for more news regarding this matter. Thank you!

Membership in InterNACHI is required by law, BTW.

Is there any update to this? I would really prefer not to pay $225 for the NHIE.
