What is ASHI – the American Society of Home Inspectors:
There are no federal laws governing home inspectors. We are regulated only by the individual states. Since the laws vary from state to state – and some states don’t even have home inspection regulations – COLORADO DOES NOT LICENSE or REGULATE HOME INSPECTORS or THE HOME INSPECTION INDUSTRY.
How can you be sure that your 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 members of the Northern Colorado Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), you can be assured that not only is each inspector qualified, but they also adhere to the association’s standards of practice and code of ethics. You can find more information about ASHI at their website, www.ashi.org.
