IHIA Mission Statement
To raise awareness and provide information about the home inspection profession through monitoring and promotion of legislative issues
The purpose of the Illinois Home Inspectors’ Association is to provide a common voice for the Illinois Home Inspectors by Illinois Home Inspectors and to help grow the profession.
As of January 2003 all Home Inspectors were required to become licensed by the Office of Banks and Real Estate. On April 1, 2004 The Governor consolidated OBRE into Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations.
The Act, (225 ILCS 441/) states that it is unlawful for any person, other than a person who hold as a valid home inspection license issued pursuant to this act, to use the title “ Home Inspector” or any other title, designation, or abbreviation likely to create that the person is licensed as a home inspector pursuant to this act. A person who violates this subsection is guilty of a misdemeanor.
The current rule states that all Home Inspectors are required to complete 6 per year continuing hours of education approved by the State. There are proposed changes for the future that would increase it to 9 per year with 3 hours becoming approved elective courses.
Officers are as follows,
President, Barry Kreiter
Board Members and Committee Chairs
William Decker, Robert Dybala, Bill Brittin, Tim Kearney, .
