18 Jun: Rice Bill To Require The Same Inspectors To Return For Reinspection

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Ronald L. Rice to require the same home inspector to return for a reinspection when violations have been issued, was approved by the full Senate today.

“When it comes to home inspections, safety must always come first,” said Senator Rice, D-Essex. “The inspector that reported the code violations has the most knowledge of the problem, so by requiring that same inspector to return for the reinspection, we can be sure that the homeowner has properly taken care of the problem. My legislation would allow homeowners to address code violations and have a reinspection completed by the same knowledgeable inspector that sited them.”
