Hello all New York State Inspectors,
As owner of ASKUS Consulting Services Home Inspector Training and Continuing Education School, I just received a note from the Department of State Division of Licensing Services. New York State now has in place its’ own Code of Ethics for Home Inspectors SUBPART 197-4 and Standards of Practice SUBPART 197-5.
These documents will have some effect on all New York State Licensed Home Inspectors if only for the now required clauses that must be included in our pre-inspection agreements. The NYS SOP & COE will be the “guiding light” for our operations.
I urge all NY State Home Inspectors to check with the DOS Division of Licensing Services to familiarize yourselves with these documents and make needed adjustments to your PIA and, if necessary, to your inspection procedure.
The New York Capital Region Chapter of InterNACHI will be having a presentation on this topic at the 11 November meeting, 6:30 PM at Doratos Restaurant, Routes 155 and 20 in Guilderland, NY. Contact me if you plan on attending so we have a headcount for the restaurant. Meals are ordered off the menu, each person pays their own. No charge to attend the meeting. My contact info is 518 827 4852 or E-mail at email@example.com
