What is the American Society of Home Inspectors?

The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) is the oldest and leading nonprofit professional association for independent home inspectors. Since it's formation in 1976, ASHI's "Standards of Practice" have service as the home inspector's performance guideline, universally recognized and accepted by professional and government authorities alike. Copies of the Standards are available.

ASHI Members subscribe to a professional Code of Ethics that prohibits them from engaging in conflict of interest activities which might compromise their objectivity. This is the consumer's assurance that the inspector will not, for example, use the inspection to solicit repair work.

In order to assist home inspectors in furthering their education, ASHI sponsors a number of technical seminars and workshops throughout the year, often in cooperation with one of its nearly 80 Chapters. ASHI also serves as a public interest group by providing accurate and helpful consumer information to home buyers on home purchasing and home maintenance.
