The dilemma caused by this is the regulatory agency is clearly limiting the choices of property owners and buyers and that could be illegal. It violates property ownership rights.

It's humorous. I own a home, can list it for sale and there is no way TREC can stop me from asking the lawn service guy what he thinks about my foundation. Home inspection has evolved into being nothing more than restraint of trade, insurance for the agent's commission and employment for bureaucrats.

I am old. I understand the process and know the loopholes. Younger people will need to cause change or just learn live with it.

That pretty much summarizes what most if not all licensing has become. It has moved away from consumer protection, if it was ever there, and toward a means of controlling and harming those who follow the laws by becoming licensed.

Thanks!

The reason I asked is because Scott Patterson of ASHI says that Nick was lying about the whole thing. That Scott seems to just tell one lie after another. What pisses me off is there was some Texas ASHI inspectors in the discussion and they remained silient. Texas ASHI most have them by the balls.

Seems they blindly follow their leadership without questioning anything. It gives the impression they have no ability to think for themselves.

Correction

I said "Home inspection has evolved into"
should be Home inspection regulation has evolved into"

I have found that inspectors who follow this forum are dedicated to improving themselves and doing a great job for their client. An example is Manny. Licensing was a gateway for him. His desire to excel is what made him an excellent inspector. There are many others like him. InterNACHI is a wonderful gateway towards self-improvement (as are other associations). Your client protection is first and foremost. I never think about the public; I think about my client. Public protection is an incidental result of many individual efforts and not regulation. Our inspections may vary a bit but the end result usually results in protecting the client.

Attention new or younger inspectors, be aware of the negatives that are posted but then focus on your self-improvement. If there is a rattlesnake on the trail just walk around it and keep going. The goal is not being the best inspector but the best inspector you can be. You will succeed.

The public record objection to Nicks plan was from Brian Murphy. He is an excellent inspector and businessman. He is also very competitive and "in my opinion" he perceived the innovation as a threat to his existing business.

The TREC Inspector Committee appeared to have similar "competition" concerns.

The TREC lawyers jumped on board because they vote for anything that increases their control.

Lone Star ASHI is comprised of a small handful of excellent inspectors but there are many many Texas inspectors who do not belong to ASHI that are equal to the task. Lone Star ASHI has very little power and certainly no more than any other group.

Nick is an entrepreneur. His ideas are continually forged into better plans. He has never lied to me and I have known him for a long time.

His idea for a listing inspection caused me to have a few feasibility questions and that in turn allowed me to create alternative ideas that I am working on. I'll share with you in months to come if someone does not beat me to it.

Innovation will happen like over the air TV to cable TV; cable TV to streaming etc. I guarantee one thing . . when it happens those who oppose will jump on board.

I really think most ASHI inspectors do not want the industry to change. They seem to like getting referrals from Realtors, and not the other way around such as Nick wants to do. ASHI needs to stop telling their inspectors that is okay to be still living in their mother’s basement, and go out on their own and become self made men.
