Why do this course now?
There are two good reasons why you should consider training as a home inspector: One of South Africa’s major corporates has approached our affiliate HouseCheck (www.housecheck.co.za) to launch a dedicated home inspection service for their clients.
This is likely to result in huge inspection volumes and as a result HouseCheck is planning to recruit 40 more home inspectors nationally, before the end of the year.
HouseCheck’s corporate client has stipulated that all home inspectors used must be SAHITA-trained and must have the capacity to deliver daily volumes of accurate and consistent inspection reports within 48 hours of the inspection.
HouseCheck has announced that even during the lockdown it will begin a selection process for home inspectors who can demonstrate building knowledge and who have either completed the SAHITA home inspection course or who are in the process of doing so.
Secondly, The Property Practitioners Act 2019 can be expected to come into effect within months. Draft regulations for this Act have already been gazetted for comment. The PPA is going to provide the SA home inspection industry with a massive boost – this is because this new law requires much higher levels of disclosure regarding the condition of the property by home sellers and their estate agents.
Now is the time to get qualified as a Home Inspector.
