As most of you have probably read in previous threads, a local TV news team recently aired an undercover ‘sting’ investigation of Home Inspectors, during which it was revealed that a State Representative was drafting legislation that would require Michigan inspectors to be licensed. I was able to track down an e-mail address for the Representative, so I wrote him asking for more details regarding the proposed legislation. Here’s his reply:
Thank you for your recent e-mail concerning House Bill 5587, which
would regulate and licence Home Inspectors.
The reason I have introduced this legislation is because of some of the
issue that you brought up in your e-mail. I had several constituents
contact me with their concerns over practices of some Home Inspectors,
while looking into their concerns I found that there is no real
supervision by the State of Michigan in this industry. My intention is
not to implement standards that help one part of the industry more then
another. MY hope is that we can work with people like yourself to
standardize training and therefore service so that the consumer can
piece of mind that they are getting the best most professional service
that they can.
I would be happy to meet with you and your organization at any time to
discuss this legislation. Also I welcome your input as an insider in
Please contact my office any time with any other questions or concerns
that you may have.
