August 21, 2014 (San Diego’s East County)--Many times, in the course of reviewing transaction files, I will read that an agent has recommended to the buyer that he or she should have the home inspected by a licensed home inspector. While one has to appreciate the earnestness of such advice, it is nonetheless at least a trifle amusing. This is because there is no licensing of home inspectors here in California. California is one of 21 states that do not regulate home inspection services via some sort of licensing mechanism.
