Wisconsin Home Inspector Requirements




Wisconsin Home Inspector Regulations

Wisconsin Certification ( Chapter 440.97 ) enacted in 1998.

Under Wisconsin's law, home inspectors must register with the State and pass an examination approved by the Department of Regulation and Licensing. The law instructs the Department to consider the use of an examination modeled after the National Home Inspector Examination. The law also requires that a home inspector perform a "reasonably competent and diligent" inspection; however, the inspection is not required to be technically exhaustive. Home inspectors are prohibited from limiting their liability from damages resulting in a failure to conduct a "reasonably competent and diligent" inspection. Also, inspectors are prohibited from performing repairs, maintenance, or improvements to a structure that they have inspected within the last two years.

Note: As legislation is continuously changing, please check back with the American Home Inspector Directory for any pending legislation in your area.
