TEXAS HOME INSPECTORS SHOULD READ THIS
The new TREC SOP's will be voted on in just a few days (Sept 30th). If enacted, you will be required at every house to pull a ladder out and walk on the roof, whether you need to or not, and also required to move items in the house to inspect it. See the comments below from John Cahill:
"The changes are profound. Any attorney can pick em out. Read them carefully. I'll pint out the differences at www.prismrca.com over time. One example. Old SoP do not require you to move times or walk on roof. New SoP do. You must move small, light and durable personal possessions. Must access roof. John":
