There are states like Florida, Arizona and Texas that have made it very difficult to operate.
Some states believe that we sell warranties or insurance to the general public. We never have.
Our intention has always been to simply support inspectors, particularly when they receive complaints of unexpected events.
To prevent potential conflict with state regulations, we have restructured our services. Every participating inspector who currently uses Mountain will be transitioned into our new service - as smoothly as possible. Clients of inspectors who use Mountain will never notice the transition.
Mountain Inspection Support Association

Participating inspectors who currently use Mountain are already being transitioned to the new organization - as smoothly as possible. Inspectors will be updated in the weeks/months to come.
