In order to protect consumers, another improvement to InterNACHI's Code of Ethics has been made by the appropriate InterNACHI Committees. Section 1.11 has been changed...
The InterNACHI inspector shall not offer to perform repairs on the property that was inspected for a period of 12 months from the time of the initial inspection.
The InterNACHI inspector shall not perform or offer to perform, for an additional fee, any repairs or associated services to the structure on which the inspector or inspector's company has prepared a home inspection report for a period of 12 months. This provision shall not include services to components and/or systems which are not included in the InterNACHI Standards of Practice.
Prior to this change, an inspector could have, theoretically, performed work on a property he/she inspected if the client requested it. This toughening of our Code of Ethics was designed to protect consumers. InterNACHI's Ethics Obstacle Course has also been modified now to reflect recent changes to our Code of Ethics.
