Home inspections have become an important part of the home-buying process, as insurance companies no longer automatically insure homes constructed with outdated building codes, and financial institutions seek assurances the homes they are financing are free of defects.
The state of Florida began licensing home inspectors in 2010. Many of the top home inspectors are accredited by the Florida Association of Building Inspectors and the American Society of Home Inspectors.
One of the leading licensed and accredited home inspectors for Lake and Sumter counties is Randy Vermeulen, president of C.I.C. Home Inspections LLC of Leesburg. Vermeulen says people need home inspections “to put their mind at ease when purchasing a place they will call home.” He has a reputation for being a straight-forward, no-nonsense inspector who provides a thorough report.
