An "Open" PA Inspector meeting was held on 3/14/2016 to discuss the Pennsylvania House Bill 1421 that was introduced by the PA legislature. The NAHI Southeast PA chapter AKA 'PAHI' hosted the event in Lansdale, which was attended by scores of inspectors, some who even drove from as far as the Poconos and Pittsburg areas. Our past President and current Board Member, Curtis Niles of Armored Home Inspections, and Jack Milne of Tri-County Inspection Co. of ASHI, presented their review of the Bill and recounted the details of the January 16th stakeholders meeting that they had previously attended at the Pennsylvania Association of REALTORS® Headquarters in Lemoyne, PA (just outside of Harrisburg).
Inspectors from ASHI central, located in Harrisburg, and the local Tri-State ASHI were also represented at this meeting. Franchises such as WIN and Pillar to Post, multi-inspector firms and small 'one man' companies were all in attendance and represented at this important event. The inspectors listened, posed their questions, and offered their opinions/comments about the Bill. Feedback from the meeting will be taken to the next stakeholders meeting with the legislators who are crafting the Bill, a date is yet to be determined. Members are encouraged to review the House Bill 1421, and offer their comments to inspector Niles, at Nilesent@msn.com. You can review the Bill at the following link: House Bill 1421
