Regulation of Home Inspectors

The Division of Corporation and Professional Licensing staffs the home inspector program. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development adopts regulations to carry out laws governing home inspectors in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws.

Home Inspectors must also obtain an Alaska Business License.
