Kansas City Buyer Beware-Inspector Must be Registered

Kansas City Magnifying GlassDuring the 2009 Legislative Session,the Kansas Legislature passed HB 2260  which regulates the home inspection industry and prohibits home inspectors from limiting their liability for errors and omissions to less than $2,000 per home inspection and requires home inspectors to register with KHIRB.  

Beginning January 1,2010,all home inspectors must be registered with the Kansas Home Inspectors Registration Board (KHIRB) to conduct home inspections. If a home inspector does not register with KHIRB by this date,they will be prohibited from performing home inspections. At this writing according to http://www.ksinspector.org there are only 57 inspectors registered with 40 different companies To see the list of registered inspectors as of 12-17-09 or visit the Registration Board’s web site.

In order to register as a home inspector,an individual will need to fulfill several requirements to prove they are qualified to provide home inspection services. Under this act,these requirements include:

(1) Be at least 18 years of age

(2) Completed high school unless such individual performed home inspections prior to July 1,2008

(3) Maintain at least $100,000 in general liability insurance coverage

(4) Maintain proof of financial responsibility for errors and omissions of at $10,000 (E&O insurance policy,surety bond,irrevocable letter of credit or escrow account)


(5) Pass an examination approved by the board unless such individual has been operating a home inspection business for at least two years and has completed 50 home inspections
