Urgent ‘Call For Action’ Launched to Ohio REALTORS to Urge Senate to Pass Home Inspection Licensure

Ohio’s REALTOR community needs to make its voice heard and urge for passage of the industry’s top legislative priority – home inspector licensure!

It’s imperative that the 33 members of the Ohio Senate act on the measure – House Bill 211 — in the next week, prior to the General Assembly adjourning for the session. As such, Ohio REALTORS has launched a “Call For Action” asking for a YES vote.

HB 211 will bring much-needed oversight to one of the last remaining unregulated aspects of the home buying process – providing consumers with another layer of protection when making what is likely the largest financial transaction they will make in a lifetime. This legislation has the strong support of Ohio REALTORS, Ohio Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors, the Southern Chapter of ASHI, the North Central Chapter of ASHI, and many Ohio consumers.

Earlier this year, thousands of Ohio REALTORS responded to a Call For Action on HB 211 and were instrumental in helping is secure passage in the House. A similar response will be needed if this commonsense, consumer protection legislation is going to make it to Gov. Kaisch’s desk for enactment.

Please answer the “Call”!

    I URGE you to protect home buyers in Ohio against uneducated, incompetent, and UNREGULATED “home inspectors” who put unsuspecting home buyers in a bad place. Do the right thing!

  6. Jennifer says:

    Once an inspection is complete, it needs to be on a website if the home needs major repairs especially for an FHA loan
    All too often, the consumers are paying for inspections on the same home which isnt right. Although an inspection is $350-$500 and the consumer owns the inspection, it should be viewable and perhaps the realtos should assume the cost if potential buyers walk away from home due to the inspection
    Saw a realtor push an inspection 3x knowingly it was an FHA loan and there was mold.
