Just curious - Has anybody heard who is throwing in all the new BS that wasn’t anywhere in the original Bill and why.
Are the Realtors going crazy? Is it the Termite Inspectors pushing this on the rest of us? Is this 1 home inspector group doing it? OR ???
Its almost laughable that someone / somebody is putting rules on home inspectors that I’ve not seen on most any other similar group including engineers, real estate appraisers, termite inspectors, etc, etc.
What gives with the 2-3 paragraphs regarding misdemeanors or felonys??
For example, I’ve now heard the Chairman of the Home Inspection Board (Jeff Barnes from Wichita) twice tell a group of people like the House Commerce Committee that since home inspectors are inside peoples homes - criminal background checks by FBI fingerprinting is vitally important to ensure that we don’t have child molestors, pedophiles, etc roaming around loose in these houses.
In 32 years we’ve never heard of this ANYWHERE, let alone out here in the Kansas home inspection ranks. We have seen several issues with this occuring in the Realtor community in the past 2 years in or around Kansas City, but NOTHING like this from home inspectors, etc.
Therefore since it always seems like Jeff Barnes is the one bringing it up, it’s starting to make many of us wonder if they’ve got some problems in the Wichita area home inspection group that they’re trying to keep hushed up AND eliminate with this unwarranted ADDITION in the laws.
