"The time is always right to do the right thing." Martin Luther King.
I am pleased to announce that as of today all national associations have now
changed their Code of Ethics to prohibit their members from offering repair services
to correct defects they find on their own inspections.
We home inspectors are the only impartial parties to real estate transactions
(everyone else has a financial interest) and consumers rely on a our independent
opinions to help make what is often the largest purchase decisions of their lives.
It is with great joy that I announce that the inspection industry is now unified
in its defense of impartiality, our profession's prime virtue. The time is always
right to do the right thing.
