We have been talking about it a lot so you have probably heard by now that the state ‘re-opened’ the window for grandfathering when applying for a home inspection license. Right now it is as easy as it ever will be to obtain. Just remember that grandfathering will be allowed until July 1, 2012. After this, we doubt the state will ever give this opportunity again.
What qualifies you to apply? A Division 1 license is all that is needed, which means individuals who hold a Certified General, Building & Residential Contractor License. No testing or education is required. The fee to the DBPR is $330 and fingerprinting is still required.
Generally, our applications are getting processed and approved within 2 weeks although the state officially has 30 days to complete their review. If you would like additional information, please let us know. As always, the gals at Licenses, Etc. can help you with the application. Give us a call today to find out more.
