Under existing law, an applicant for licensure as a home inspector is required to submit to the Construction Management Division within the Department of Finance a certification that the applicant has procured public liability and property damage insurance covering the applicant's home inspection operations
This bill would provide that the statutory requirement that home inspectors maintain liability insurance does not prohibit contractual limitations of liability between home inspectors and their customers, provided the limitations are in compliance with the minimum liability insurance requirements
This bill would also make nonsubstantive, technical revisions to update the existing code language to current style, and would substitute references to the Building Commission for the Construction Management Division within the Department of Finance, to reflect the earlier abolishment of the Building Commission and the transfer of its duties and authorities to the Division of Construction Management
Relating to home inspectors; to amend Sections 34-14B-2, 34-14B-3, 34-14B-4, 34-14B-4.1, 34-14B-5, 34-14B-6, 34-14B-8, 34-14B-9, and 34-14B-10, Code of Alabama 1975, to provide further for limitations of liability of home inspectors; and to make nonsubstantive, technical revisions to update the existing code language to current style and terminology.
