A home inspector is a person who inspects, analyzes, and reports the physical condition of a property. There are no licensing requirements to become a private home inspector in the state of Minnesota. That being said, the liabilities associated with the private inspection business make professional training essential. To be a public home inspector in the Minnesota Twin Cities—one who performs Truth-in-Housing or code compliance inspections—one must be licensed by the governing city or municipality. To be a private home inspector in some surrounding states, such as Wisconsin and North Dakota, you must obtain a state license. Whatever your aspirations, the first step to getting started in the home inspection business is to enroll in a home inspection training program.
