Foundation repair companies are not regulated. They routinely send non-inspectors to homes being bought and sold to measure elevations and render an opinion with the caveat that final interpretation of cause and remediation must be provided by an engineer. They usually do it for free but if you want the elevation sketch they charge for it.

Same for framer doing minor repair.
Same for the gutter installer
Same for the mason
Same for the painter
Same for window repair or replacement companies.
Same for drainage contractors.
Same for siding contractors.

I see no need to use a TREC form or to put my insurance at risk if I am looking at a single system or providing other consulting services providing I clearly state this is not a TREC inspection. If TREC wants to dispute that then they are going to have to take on a hell of a lot of workers.
Lastly, the sales contract indicates licensed people will be used whenever required and the code will be followed. It can be argued that the agents were negligent if they did not assure that compliance when repairs were done. LoL, how many repairs are done without a permit by handy persons? Gonna bury inspectors? Then bury working people and agents too!
Deregulate home inspection
