Best States for a Home Inspection

Home inspection regulation laws are put in place to protect the homeowner from unscrupulous inspectors who may profit from making recommendations for repairs or are in cahoots with unethical real estate agents. In the last 10 years, 28 states have enacted some form of home inspection regulation. Are these laws enough to protect the interests of consumers? What about the 19 states that have no laws governing home inspection?

Here’s a list from the ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) in order of best to worst states for a home inspection. And some tips for hiring a home inspector.
