What do you mean my home inspector isn't licensed in Minnesota???

As it Turns out, None of them are...

Yep, none of the home inspectors you will find on this list, anywhere on the Interweb, or in that paper book thing with phone numbers in it are licensed to perform home inspections in the state of Minnesota.  Reason: There is no licensing requirement by the state of Minnesota for a home inspector.   Actually, the contingency for a home inspection as currently written on the standard Minnesota approved form reads, "Buyer shall satisfy Buyer as to the qualifications of the home inspector(s)"  (MN:APA:IC-1 (10/13)

​So how should you go about selecting a home inspector for quite possibly the single biggest purchase you will make?  I'll let you in on a little hint, it probably shouldn't be based on price.

Experience, qualifications, history of employment, references, etc.

When you pick up the phone and call at least three home inspectors to interview them for potentially looking over your new home, be ready with some questions:

  1. If you have specific concerns about your new home, ask their knowledge of those fields - HVAC, plumbing, electrical etc.

  2. How long have you been performing home inspections?

  3. How many home inspections did you perform last year?

  4. What is your work history and/or qualifications?  Do you have a history in home building/remodeling industry?

  5. Are you bonded and insured in the event that you miss something?

  6. Do you charge a fee for reinspecting items?

  7. Do you inspect for radon, carbon monoxide and gas leaks?

  8. How long do you typically spend at a property?

  9. What type of report will I get?

  10. ​How much do you charge?
