Home Inspections by Licensed Engineers and Architects

An individual who holds a valid license as a professional engineer or architect may do home inspections without obtaining a home inspector license. However, they cannot use the term “home inspector” in any way or advertise that they conduct home inspections. They also must seal, sign and date the inspection report. If they call themselves “home inspectors” or advertise their services as “home inspectors” or fail to seal, sign and date the report they are in violation of AS 08.18.053 and the Division will open an investigation for unlicensed practice.
