Although I have worked with many excellent, well qualified home inspectors over the Home Inspection - Magnifying Glassyears, I have also worked with a few who would make you question just what exactly made them think they were qualified to do this job. Below is the Ontario Real Estate Association’s take on this:

The Ontario home inspection industry should be regulated, according to the Ontario Real Estate Association. Ontario REALTORS® support the provincial government’s initiative to push for regulation to enhance the home inspection industry and provide greater protection to consumers. Currently, anyone in Ontario can call himself or herself a home inspector. The Ministry of Consumer Services commissioned a review of home inspector qualifications by an independent, 16-member panel of stakeholders, including home inspectors, consumer advocates, educators, and professionals in real estate, law and insurance. A Closer Look: Qualifying Ontario’s Home Inspectors, was released in December and recommends regulation of home inspection industry. The panel made 35 recommendations in its 72-page report, after which the government invited public review and feedback to guide decision-making. Click the link to view this report.
