Legislation to improve home inspection reporting and licensing was approved by the House Finance Committee, the full House and was concurred in by the Senate this past week. SB 1007 (Amend Home Inspector Licensure Laws), introduced by Sens. David Hoyle (D-Gaston) and Don Vaughan (D-Guilford), http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2009/Bills/Senate/PDF/S1007v5.pdf, clarifies what information should be contained on the summary page of the home inspection report. And the bill requires all existing home inspectors to take 48 hours of instruction over the next three years on inspection techniques and reporting requirements. The bill also changes the licensing procedure from an apprentice-style approach to one that requires pre-licensing education. In addition to the hard work of the Senate sponsors, the sponsors of the legislation in the House (Rep. Pryor Gibson (D–Anson) and Rep. Thom Tillis (R–Mecklenburg)) were tireless in advocating for this legislation.
