New Jersey Standards of Practice

In New Jersey, the Home Inspection Advisory Committee, part of the state Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors, establishes not only the standards for home inspectors working in the state, but also oversees the regulation and licensing of home inspectors. At Dean Arrington Associates, we’re proud to say that we are fully licensed and compliant with all of the standards set forth by the state of New Jersey, meaning that you can trust your inspection will be as thorough and detailed as possible.

In much the same way that the American Society of Home Inspectors sets out standards of practice, the state’s home inspector regulations clearly define what aspects should be reviewed as part of inspecting your prospective property in Union County or elsewhere in central or northern New Jersey. This includes heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems, fireplaces, plumbing, insulation and structural components, and much more. The state also sets forth requirements for ongoing education and relicensing every two years, meaning that you can trust all licensed inspectors are certified to be knowledgeable and reliable.

Below is excerpted text from the state’s code defining the standards for home inspectors to adhere to. As you will see, the codes outline many details of a home inspection and describe the areas and systems that are inspected.  You can rely on your inspection with Dean Arrington Associates covering each of these aspects – and often much, much more!  You will gain valuable information on how the systems in your new home operate.  Educating the buyer about their new property is an integral part of the process.
