National Ethics Society of Home Inspectors NESHI
Q. WHAT IS THE NATIONAL
ETHICS SOCIETY OF HOME INSPECTORS?
The National Ethics Society of Home Inspectors
(NESHI) was established in 2001 to guide Professional Home
Inspectors and encourage ethical practices within the industry.
Membership in NESHI is established by an Inspector accepting
and practicing ethical professional standards set forth
by NESHI and its board of directors.
Ethical standards are extremely important
in the home inspection industry. Clients are relying on
the professional opinions of the inspector and the inspector
must remain unbiased and neutral without conflicts of interest.
For example, practices such as paying Real Estate Agents
and/or Companies to be a "Preferred Vendor" or
an "Affiliated Business" is strictly forbidden
and using the inspection to solicit or refer repair work
is also prohibited. NESHI members cannot engage in such
practices and participation in those and similar activities
will result in expulsion from the organization.
Q. WHO BELONGS TO
Members of NESHI are independent professional
home inspectors who have met and pledge to continue to meet
and surpass ethical standards within their company and the
industry at large. To become a NESHI Member, an inspector
must pledge and maintain ethical business and industry standards
and follow the Society's Code of Ethics. NESHI stresses
that inspections performed by a Professional Home Inspector
must be fair and impartial without conflicts of interest
for another cause.
