    Helping H.I.T.A. grow benefits all members!

    There were close to 1000 licensed inspectors in Tennessee when we last checked. Every member we can gain will help H.I.T.A. offer the members the best education for the lowest membership fee. The more members, the less H.I.T.A. membership will cost per member. We encourage you to invite your inspection peers from your market to join. Membership also helps gain us strength in the TN state legislature when we participate in areas that affect our industry.

    Take an Active roll in H.I.T.A.

    H.I.T.A. is a non-profit  state organization governed by a fully voluntary elected board. The board meets on Friday evening prior to all scheduled CE classes normally at the hotel. Members are encouraged to attend the board meetings to see if you might be inclined to participate as a member of the H.I.T.A. board* or one of the committees. While participation does come with responsability, there are perks. Elected board members have their membership fees waived as well as receiving a small stipend when attending the board meeting to help offset additional incurred expenses such as rooms, fuel, etc. If you would like to attend, please message me at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

    *There are some requirements to be elected to the H.I.T.A. board that can be found in the by-laws that can be found on this site.

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a visual evaluation of the readily accessible systems and components of a primary residential structure. A home inspection report is the written product of this evaluation. Because there exists no established objective criterion for the condition of the home prior to title transfer or sale, there is no passing or failing of a home inspection. There are many factors that are not in the scope of a home inspection that would aid in the determination of the acceptability of a home’s condition. The assessed value of a home is dynamic depending on many factors, such as market trends, past sales of comparable property, the condition of the property, etc. The expertise of a real estate professional is a valuable tool in determining the weight given to the condition of the property in this formula.

History of HITA


 

The Home Inspection Licensing Program

tn-seal 100x100In July 2006 the state of Tennessee enacted a law through the Tennessee Commerce and Insurance Commission Division of Regulatory Boards regulating the Home Inspection Industry named the Home Inspection Licensing Program.  The law has education requirements, insurance requirements, successfully passing National Home Inspectors Exam, and adopted a Standard of Practice and Code of Ethics. For complete requirements you may visit the  Tennessee Commerce and Insurance Commission's Official Website or for your convenience you may view the "Rules" here.

What are the benefits of using an HITA inspector?

Choosing a HITA home inspector means choosing an inspector familiar with and experienced in the sometimes unique conditions that affect homes in Tennessee.  HITA inspectors are focused on construction issues in Tennessee and not the myriad of national issues that might be important in other areas.  HITA inspectors adhere to the Tennessee standards of practice and code of ethics.

We invite you to visit us at one of our quarterly meetings. Our members are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the organization and how you can join.
