Home inspectors.

Bill Subjects

Home Inspectors.


Existing law regulates persons who perform home inspections for a fee in connection with a property transfer, as defined. Existing law establishes a standard of care for home inspectors who are not licensed as a general contractor, structural pest control operator, or architect, or registered as a professional engineer, and declares that certain activities by a home inspector or a company that employs a home inspector constitute unfair business practices. This bill would require a home inspector to be a licensee of the Contractors' State License Board pursuant to the Contractors' State License Law. By increasing application and examination fees received into the Contractors' License Fund, a continuously appropriated fund as it pertains to fees collected by the board, this bill would make an appropriation.
