Our Standards of Practice
As of January 1, 2003, the State of Illinois has implemented a law requiring that all home inspectors and corporations practicing home inspections be State Licensed. Our Inspector’s license is #450000332, and the Corporation’s license is #451000154. The Office of Banks and Real Estate, also known as OBRE, are the regulators of this licensure.
To be state licensed, you are required to have so many years of experience, classroom training, continuing education, and must have passed the National Exam. High Point Inspections Exceeds the State’s Requirements and takes the regulation of the home inspection industry very seriously. All of our inspectors exceed the standards of the industry by following the standards set forth by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). They also carry Errors and Omissions Insurance coverage.
We feel that Errors and Omissions Insurance is needed to reassure all parties involved in the inspection process. Therefore, if there is a claim as a result of one of our home inspections, you can feel confident knowing that each inspector is covered.
The American Society of Home Inspectors is the oldest, largest, and highest-profile organization of home inspectors in North America. We are Certified ASHI Inspectors #243873. The Standards of Practice set forth by this organization are the most widely accepted home inspection guidelines in use and are recognized by many government and professional groups as the definitive standard for professional performance.
