Summary: SB 1296 would increase the regulations placed on real estate inspectors to match the other licenses that the Texas Real Estate Commission oversees. The increase in regulations would include criminal background checks and an increase in required classroom hours.
Analysis: Increasing regulations further strengthens the barrier to entry for professions like real estate inspectors. This limits the field and increases the prices that individuals would have to pay for their services.
