The problem is ONLY home inspectors need the training so only Home Inspectors will know this and only home inspectors who take the newest course.
Once most folks are qualified to do something that is where they stop.
Very few actually try to stay on top of things like those we see daily here discussing the issues.
As far as I am concerned if it does not ask it on the form the information is not required.
I do not believe the insurance companies have the right to add whatever they wish to the way things are done. If it does not state something on the form I do not believe it should be taken into consideration.
That does not mean I believe it is the correct way or not to do something but I do believe if it is a must then it MUST say so on the form.
You want my opinion on the matter I believe everyone doing them should have to take new training whenever there is a new form. I personally would hate it but at least most would be on the same page.
I also have problems with that because the classes are nothing but opinions. Nothing that is not on the form should be taught as fact.
The guy from last night teaches things as fact when he admits that he adds things based on what inspectors tell him insurance companies require and he speaks as if the OIR and Citizens are one.
I believe that crap is wrong. I believe opinions should not matter and only the facts to the questions on the form whatever the form may be should matter.
