Sunset review and home inspection

(John Cahill, TREC 855) #1

Recommendations are noteworthy.

TREC self-evaluation. The first two main items TREC requested was increased insurance and elimination of the recovery fund. TREC requested 3 other items you can read for yourself.

Sunset made no comment on increasing inspector insurance essentially saying no.

Sunset recommends home inspector instructors not require special TREC approval.

Sunset recommends redundant inspector education be eliminated and follow national trends. That reduces education from about 440 to 120 to 180 hours to become a Professional Inspector.

TREC self evaluation page 79.
