Inspect the inspectors
Lawmakers introduce bills requiring home inspectors to receive training, be licensed
By DOUG HENZE
Of The Daily Oakland Press
  
"While Accavitti says the three major home inspector trade groups-the American Society of Home Inspectors, the National Association of Home Inspectors, and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors - have signed off on the licensing bill, some local inspectors say they hate the idea."  "Im dead set against it," said Mel Jacobs, Great Lakes Chapter president of ASHI...
 
"Accavitti, who already has drafted a substitute bill to address the concerns inspectors have brought to him, said ASHI has tried to establish its test as the state's. "That's not going to happen in the state of Michigan," he said, explaining that the law won't be designed to give any organization an advantage."
  
Update:  89 inspectors attend InterNACHI's SE Michigan Chapter meeting.

Update:  SE Michigan InterNACHI Chapter develops its own website.
