Enforcement of Unlicensed Home Inspectors

Enforcement of Unlicensed Activity for Home Inspectors will begin July 1, 2011

House Bill 713 delayed unlicensed enforcement of home inspector licensure until July 1, 2011. This delay allowed initial applicants and those who were already working in the profession the necessary time to complete education, experience and testing necessary to meet the licensure requirements. In addition, this delay helped to identify any unintended consequences of the new legislation and present possible solutions during the 2011 Legislative Session. Starting on July 1, 2011, the full enforcement of home inspector licensure requirements per Chapter 468, Part XV, Florida Statutes. This means anyone holding themselves out to be home inspectors needs to be licensed through the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Please review Chapter 468, Part XV, Florida Statutes for the laws detailing Home Inspection services.
