Regarding the article (March 1) on home inspectors, I submit the following: At present there is no licensing requirements for home inspectors in California. The Contractors' State License Board has no jurisdiction over home inspectors. The board only has jurisdiction over the trades that are licensed. Anyone contemplating having a home inspection should be skeptical when an inspection company directly or indirectly gives the impression that it is licensed as home inspectors.

A sting in a neighborhood hard hit by November's wildfires netted seven arrests of allegedly unlicensed contractors, officials said Thursday. The undercover operation was conducted by police, the district attorney's office and the Contractors State License Board. In addition to the felony arrests for bidding without a license in a declared disaster area, one contractor also was arrested on suspicion of heroin possession. The contractors had run ads, distributed fliers, posted Internet notices or been targeted by complaints to the contractors board.
