About Home Inspections
The State of Vermont does require Home Inspectors to be licensed.
- Once you have a property “Under Contract”, you will need to set up an inspection. It is best to contact at least three inspectors to get a sense of their experience, ability to deliver the report in a timely manner, and compare the cost of the inspections. The cost is usually based on the following:
1. Size of Home/Condo – good to have the MLS data sheet to help you with this information
2. Location of Property – how far does the inspector have to travel? Most do not charge for this, but go ahead and ask.
3. Additional Tests – these could include radon and water tests.
- Sometimes, either before, during or after the inspection, the inspector may recommend you hire a specialist. This could include a structural engineer, a septic inspector, a heating specialist, an electrician, or a plumber.
The State of Vermont began licensing Property Inspectors in 2016. To see more about licensing requirements, click on the logo below:
