Washington H.I.'s Respond to Proposed Legislation


Recommended Posts

By Mike O'Handley

On January 9th, Washington State Senators Spanel and Kohl-Welles introduced legislation to require registration of all home inspectors in the State of Washington. As is the custom in Olympia, that bill, Senate Bill 6229, was immediately sent to a sunrise review committee to determine whether there is a need for such legislation, and it is anticipated that it will resurface.

In response to that legislation, which many inspectors saw as not representative of the home inspectors in the state, a concerned group of home inspectors met to form a broad coalition, representative of all major organizations and independent inspectors in the state, to address the question of home inspector legislation in Washington State.

This group, the Washington Home Inspectors Legislative Advisory Group, meets monthly and is seeking input pro or con about home inspection legislation from all concerned Washington State home inspectors.
