Vermont – Home Inspection State Regulations

Regulating Body:

Property inspectors are governed using the “advisor” model of regulation, created by the Legislature. Two members of the profession, appointed by the Secretary of State, advise the director of the Office of Professional Regulation (OPR) on matters relating to the profession. Their mission is public protection. The director and the advisors carry out this mission by ensuring that applicants are qualified for licensure; setting standards for the profession by proposing statutes and adopting administrative rules; and, with the assistance of OPR staff, investigating complaints of unprofessional conduct and taking disciplinary action when necessary to protect the public.

This site provides links to the laws governing this profession, as well as resources for applicants, licensees, consumers, and employers.
