Washington State Finally Has Licensed Inspectors!
September 2009
Few realize that our neighbors to the north had no home inspection licensing laws until September 1, 2009. Prior to this time virtually anyone could perform home inspections. 
Home inspectors are now required to be licensed with the Washington State Department of Licensing.
