A lot of people think anyone can be a home inspector. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The State of Maryland requires that all home inspectors be licensed and insured. Before hiring a home inspector, take the extra step to check the State of Maryland Home Inspector Public Query to verify that they are not illegally operating without a license. To find me, search for Home Inspector License #32811.
In order to obtain a Maryland Home Inspector License, inspectors must complete at least 72 hours of classroom training and pass a 200-question closed-book examination. This test requires significant technical knowledge. Annual continuing education is also required to remain in good standing.
The State of Maryland also requires home inspectors to carry $100,000 of general liability insurance. I carry ten times that amount – $1,000,000 of liability insurance as well as $1,000,000 of errors & omissions insurance.
American Home Inspection Training Institute
I have completed the 80-hour program offered in a classroom setting. The curriculum was taught within the scope of national standards and provides an in-depth look at each component of a home from the perspective of an inspector including hundreds of pictures and multiple on-site practice homes.
International Association of Certified Home Inspectors
I am an active member of InterNACHI and a Certified Professional Inspector (#16121609). In addition to providing standards for ethics and inspection procedures, this organization is an invaluable resource of experts from around the world that I consult with when necessary.
