Please reference old post below. I have been asked numerous times lately about doing commercial WM inspections and am not 100% on the answer. I have been told that a Home Inspector can not fill out the forms for anything larger than a “4 unit” apartment building and that larger buildings require a “structural engineering license”. However, I have also been told that standard condo buildings with 3 or less stories use the standard uniform mitigation form which a home inspector can fill out. Can anyone advise on what is correct?
I found this post from few years ago;
“”"""Citizens’ underwriters review all mitigation forms and other supporting documents. Your mitigation form may not be accepted if the appropriate professional, as outlined in the form, does not perform an inspection or the professional’s Florida license is not active or cannot be verified.
As authorized under Section 627.711(8) of Florida law, Citizens reserves the right to verify any wind mitigation form completed by a qualified inspector by ordering an independent inspection.
