Topic: Home Inspection report terminology and ASHI Standard of Practice
Speaker: Roger Hankey, ACI at Hankey & Brown Inspection Services
Roger is a past President of the Heartland Chapter. He served 5 years on the ASHI Standards committee and chaired the committee for several years.
Roger will discuss the May 2018 ASHI Reporter feature “Find All Defects – Postcard ANSWERS”. He will reference the ASHI Standard of Practice and good report writing principles. The discussion will include references to report writing phrases and terms developed by retired ASHI Member Kevin O’Hornett of ProSpex.us, a subscription-based inspector technical support service.
Roger will also facilitate a report writing exercise using photos of conditions found on recent inspections. Each participant can submit written report comments to be discussed by the group. No need to sign your comments. We will work on writing clear accurate descriptions and appropriate recommendations. Bring paper & pen/pencil.
