For the last several years home inspectors in Kansas and Missouri have been threatened with un-needed and burdensome licensing attempts pushed by another profession (the Realtors), and in Kansas the Realtors have been aided by a handful of home inspectors based in Wichita stating they speak for about250-260 inspectors in Kansas (actually they’re mostly just a mailing list).
Many newer inspectors don’t know who the special interest groups are OR that these groups try to put requirements on US that they themselves don’t have.
Due to the pandemic and other legislative priorities; the hard work by some of the veteran inspectors in InterNACHI, ASHI, the Engineers, sympathetic legislators, and a few consumer groups these onerous were stopped.
