Do you think that licensing will help or hinder house sales. In the US so I am told, it has made little to no difference except one category: lawsuits. If you are "licensed" I don't care what the profession it is you are apt to be sued for the most ridiculous thing even in an agreement that you have read and signed such as a contract just because you are licensed. The term license really means you have completed some federal imposed rules/courses (approved by politicians that don't know which is a thermostat and which is a light switch) that give you the right to say that you are licensed.
Here in Canada only two provinces have licensing BC and now Alberta. Since the inception of licensing has incurred so have law suits coincidence... I THINK NOT. We have been told that Ontario is not looking at licensing although special interest groups (associations) are trying to goad government officials into enforcing licensing...why because they usually are the same HI associations that run schools or sell books or dvd's on Home inspection therefore they have allot to gain.
In your experience has it been detrimental to your sales experience in having a licensed Home inspector or not having a licensed inspector report on the home you are selling or buying?
So do you think it will make a difference yes or no!
