Home Inspectors Licensing to Require an Exam after January 1

The clock is ticking for home inspectors who must now be licensed to perform home inspection services in Oklahoma.

"The newly created Home Inspectors Licensing Act (Senate Bill 198) requires all persons performing home inspections in Oklahoma to be licensed by July 1, 2002.Passing an exam will be one of the new requirements for those who do not apply to be licensed under a grandfather clause," said Jerry Regier, Interim Administrator of the Construction Industries Board at the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH).

Senate Bill 198 allows a period of time during which persons may be licensed as home inspectors without having to take an examination. Regier added, "Those who wish to be considered for licensing under this grandfather clause must request an application from the OSDH Construction Industries Board Division, and the application must be completed and returned prior to Jan.1, 2002."

All applications received before Jan. 1 will be reviewed by the Committee of Home Inspector Examiners to determine if licensing qualifications are met. For more information about the applications process, or to request an application, contact Dannette Yousey, OSDH Home Inspectors Unit at 405-271-5217.
