There are no federal laws governing New York home inspectors.  New York Home Inspectors are regulated only by the Department of State.  Since the laws vary from state to state – and some states don’t even have home inspection regulations – how can you be sure that your home inspector is qualified, experienced, and trustworthy?  One way is through home inspector associations.  Some of them require minimum training, education, experience, and adherence to ethical standards.  Be sure to check out the individual associations to see their individual requirements.

As a member of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI), you can be assured that not only am I qualified, but I also adhere to the association’s standards of practice and code of ethics.  You can find more information about NACHI at their website,

 Is your home inspector blind?  If he's not a member of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI), he might just be!

NACHI is the only association that front-ends its membership requirements.  We turn down more than 1/2 the inspectors who want to join because they can't pass our exam or fulfill our membership requirements. 

NACHI inspectors:

So the next time you need a home inspector, make sure they are members of NACHI and never use a candidate or associate of any association.  NACHI, America's elite home inspection association.
