The purpose of the Kentucky Board of Home Inspectors is to administer and enforce the statutory authority and to monitor the needs of the consuming public. The board examines and certifies all eligible candidates for entry into the profession of home inspection. It recommends appropriate changes in the law to assure fairness and equality. The board conducts formal hearings when necessary and prosecutes by due process any violators of KRS 198B.700 - KRS 198B.738.
The board is a self-supporting agency and receives no General Fund tax appropriation. It is funded entirely through fees assessed for licensing its professionals.
The board does not have the authority to award monetary damages for any acts, omissions or breaches of a licensed home inspector. If you believe you were damaged by any acts, omissions or breaches, you may want to seek legal advice.
