The North Carolina Licensed Home Inspector Association (NCLHIA) was formed in 1997 to provide a professional organization for all home inspectors licensed in North Carolina. “The mission of the NCLHIA, the premier nonprofit association of licensed home inspectors in North Carolina, is to promote excellence and exemplary practice within the profession and to meet the needs of the home buying/selling public”.

The Association is organized into chapters across North Carolina that hold monthly educational/business meetings. We presently have active chapters in the Triangle Raleigh-Durham area and in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.  We are actively pursuing chapter growth, especially around Wilmington and Asheville, and welcome members in those markets to contact the board if you wish to help.

Licensure is accomplished by meeting stringent requirements set by the State of North Carolina and passing a comprehensive examination administered by the Home Inspector Licensure Board.  NCLHIA Membership is open to all licensed home inspectors in North Carolina.  Annual dues are one hundred fifty dollars ($150).  The Association is managed by a Board of Directors and an Executive Director.
