In my state the is a section of the state construction industries board covering home inspections.
Interesting story is that the link was broken and I had to call them because they did a website upgrade at some point and this page reverted to an old link that was no longer active…
Back on topic - on page five, it says:
"(6) All home inspectors should provide the standards of practice of this section to all
potential clients prior to the home inspection by proof of signature of acknowledgement.
I’m a little confused because “should” doesn’t mean “must” and I’d prefer to just leave a link to the entire section so if one is so inclined they can visit and read all they want but I don’t want to have them sign more documents than necessary. Also Oklahoma has developed its own minimum standards but the only Pre-Inspection agreement I have is for ASHI standards (you’ll have to forgive me because when I decided to become an Inspector I didn’t know anything about the different organizations).
What do you make of it, do I have to provide this to clients and have them sign it, also how do I know if ASHI standards are valid for the state since the state has its own set of standards. Don’t worry i’ll become a member of InterNACHI as soon as possible but right now i’m just trying to get set up.
