3. The proposed Amendment is nothing more than a word-for-word recitation [with a different numbering scheme to fool the unwary] of the standards of practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors, an out-of-state organization to which Mr. Rudolph belongs, rather than the more stringent standards of practice of the Colorado-based NACHI, which is not only the world?s largest association of home inspectors, but Loveland?s, Colorado?s and America?s, as well. Because NACHI standards of practice, continuing education and annual testing requirements are so high, AIG, the world?s largest insurance company, insures NACHI members exclusively at a substantial discount from the rates it regularly charges for errors and omissions insurance. By lowering the home inspection standards to the ASHI model, the City of Loveland will instantly eliminate almost all of the inspectors in the city of Loveland and make it impossible for many to acquire errors and omission insurance to protect the consuming public.

4. The continuing education requirement is inadequate. It should be at least twenty-four (24) hours.

5. There is no annual testing requirement of the home inspector in the proposed Amendment. In an industry that has undergone and continues to undergo such rapid change as the home inspection industry, inspectors should be required to demonstrate continued competency. If the purported rationale behind the Amendment is to protect the consuming public, this is a glaring omission.

6. There is no requirement that the home inspector have any experience whatsoever. If the purported rationale behind the Amendment is to protect the consuming public, this is a glaring omission.

7. Section 3.2.5 is clearly unconstitutional. As written, one could be barred from earning a living as a home inspector on the basis of unproved allegations, while, ironically, a convicted criminal who, thus, has a resolved complaint, could operate as a home inspector with impunity, an absurd result.

8. The Amendment is tainted by its provenance. It was prepared and proposed by a home inspector who is a member of Loveland?s Construction Advisory Board and has ties to the real estate industry. The Amendment he has proposed would eliminate his direct competition which is a clear violation of 5-2(a) of the Loveland City Charter relating to Ethics.

9. Finally, despite NACHI?s having met with the Construction Advisory Board and provided Jon Rudolph with a torrent of material germane to the proposed Amendment, the proposed Amendment omits any mention of NACHI in the Acknowledgement Section, an oversight that could not be unintentional.

Respectfully submitted,


Nick Gromicko

Russel, if it wasn’t for Mr. Rudolph the red-handed raindeer we would never have met. You really started it all by getting me out there a couple years ago.


You're the reason I live in Colorado today.

Thanks!

I concur; insurance is a business decision unless it is mandated by the state or province.


In my particular case insurance is not a requirement, nor is it a requirement to be a member of NACHI, .OAHI nor ASHI, or CAHPI in Ontario.

Here is your act of misrepresentation, Joe, unless you can quote such a thing from this letter. I think you owe Mr. Gromicko an apology. I hope you washed your hands before you started putting all of those words in his mouth like that. ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)
