Home Inspection Standard Member Comment Announcement

ASHI STAFF





The Standards Committee is accepting comments about a proposed change to the ASHI Standard of Practice for Home Inspections (SoP). The committee encourages members to read this proposed SoP change and provide comments to the committee. Please direct comments and questions to Bruce Barker at Bruce@ DreamHomeConsultants.com. The comment period ends on December 15, 2016. 

A copy of the proposed standard is attached to this email. A link to this standard may be found on the ASHI website home page, www.homeinspector.org. 

As ASHI develops more ancillary standards of practice, concern has been expressed about clients believing that services addressed in ancillary standards are, or should be, part of a home inspection. The objective of this proposed SoP change is to clarify that services addressed in ancillary standards are not part of a home inspection.
