NAHI Announces New National Home Inspection Standards of Practice, Annotated

July 31, 2014

Bradenton, Florida: The National Association of Home Inspectors, Inc. (NAHI), announced today the adoption of the National Home Inspection Standards of Practice, Annotated. Touted as the most significant overhaul of home inspection standards in the past 30 years, the new National Standards clarify what a home inspector is supposed to look at and what the inspector should be looking for when looking at a component of the house.

According to Claude McGavic, Executive Director at NAHI, “Traditional industry standards of practice would say something like, …the inspector will inspect the roof. To the inspector, that may mean one thing but it might mean something else to the client, the real estate agents and the seller. And, if there is a dispute and attorneys get involved, all bets are off”. McGavic, who comes from a regulatory background, believes the public is best protected when everyone understands the rules, and hopes that states will consider updating to the new annotated national standard.

The new annotated standards set realistic expectations for a home inspection. Instead of the old language which says, “… the inspector will inspect the roof”, the new standards, list more than one hundred very specific roof related defects the inspector should be looking for. The new standards cover all the major components and systems in a house. A copy of the new National Home Inspection Standard of Practice, Annotated is available at www.nahi.org.

About NAHI: Headquartered in Bradenton, Florida, the National Association of Home Inspectors, Inc. was founded in 1987. After twenty seven years of continued trade association membership growth, NAHI has established itself as having the highest caliber of professional home inspectors in the United States.

Judi, well said and the new Standards set NAHI well ahead of other associations. The industry has changed over the years and what was acceptable 30 years ago is not today. Thanks to the BOD for getting this done and for Claudes hard work along with staff. Ross Landau
