Maine does NOT have any requirements to be a home inspector. There are no tests. There are no
pre-requisites. Heck, your mom, dad, or even your kids qualify to be a home inspector!
The question is - would you hire them? Probably not. You want someone with expertise. Someone who has experience and someone certified with proper training. After all, the purchase you are making is a large one.
