The Level 2 Background Screening for Florida Home Inspector License is required by F.S. 468.83
The Legislature recognizes that there is a need to require the licensing of home inspectors and to ensure that consumers of home inspection services can rely on the competence of home inspectors, as determined by educational and experience requirements and testing. Therefore, the Legislature deems it necessary in the interest of the public welfare to regulate home inspectors in this state.
The statute states:
F.S. 468.8313— Home Inspectors Background Screening
(6) An applicant for a home inspector license shall submit, together with the application, a complete set of electronic fingerprints to the department of business and professional regulation. The DBPR shall submit the fingerprints to the Department of Law Enforcement for state processing, and the Department of Law Enforcement shall forward them to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for national processing, to determine whether the applicant has a criminal history record. The department shall review the background results to determine if an applicant meets licensure requirements. The applicant is responsible for the costs associated with processing the fingerprints. The authorized agencies or vendors shall collect such fees and pay for the processing costs due to the Department of Law Enforcement.
