  • The Home Inspectors of Tennessee Association (HITA). Please click on this link to verify our associateion with HITA - http://www.hita.us   
       

 

Since 1988 HITA has provided the following services and thus improved the quality of home and commercial inspections throughout Tennessee:
1) Established a comprehensive HITA inspection skills Examination specific to Tennessee construction practices. Passing this exam was required for all new members until the National Home Inspectors Exam was substituted later.
2) Instituted a HITA Certification process which provides the real estate industry and consumers with HITA property inspectors who maintain the highest professional standards of service.
3) Required mandatory Continuing Education for all its inspector members at reasonable costs. This ensures the public that HITA inspector members are thoroughly knowledgeable about building construction techniques specific to Tennessee. At HITA’s educational meetings we also help our inspector members improve report writing and other skills used during the inspection process.
4) HITA was instrumental in cooperating with State Legislators, Realtor®Associations, and other home inspector associations to draft and pass the Tennessee Home Inspector Licensing Act of 2005. We continue to work cooperatively with the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance to bring HITA and its members in compliance with all the Department Rules and Regulations relating to the Act.

5) HITA’s history also includes many other important accomplishments such as issuing product safety recall bulletins and promoting harmonious relationships with Realtors
and Mortgage Lenders.
HITA will continue to make history by challenging our inspector members to perform the most objective, accurate, and comprehensive inspection possible on the condition of Tennessee homes and commercial properties.
