Home Inspection Association of India (HIA) and International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) have signed a partnership designed to promote the adoption of world class home inspection standards in the Indian home inspection industry.
With a burgeoning real estate market comparable in size to many of the larger mature markets, the timing is ripe in India to organize the hitherto non-existent home inspection industry. The potential of the Indian home inspection industry can be seen by the number of home inspection companies that have been incorporated in the past few months. In such an environment, it is essential to come up with standards and practices that ensure that the customer gets a home inspection that is equivalent to any home inspection conducted anywhere in the world. The recent formation of the Home Inspection Association of India is one of the steps in this regard and the partnership with InterNACHI, will help fast track HIA’s goals. InterNACHI set up an India chapter recently too and this partnership solidifies InterNACHI’s presence in India.
HIA is working towards improving the visibility of home inspections in India by educating all new homeowners about the benefits of home inspections. Its goal is to come up with operating, certification and affiliation guidelines for all the home inspection companies in India. Additional information about HIA can be obtained at the association website www.hiai.in.
InterNACHI, the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, is the world’s largest inspection trade association. Based in the United States, InterNACHI is both non-profit and federally tax-exempt, and operates in 65 different countries and nine languages with over 22,000 members.
