What is a USHIA Trust Report?



What is a USHIA Trust Report?


In today's marketplace, the average business can post a few positive reviews and create a company website with very little effort.

How do you know if the Home Inspector you have selected is trustworthy?

USHIA helps combat fraud and fake reviews by doing it's own independent research and releasing a trust report on it's findings for businesses in the Home Inspector industry, similar to a Home Inspector report card.

USHIA trust reports allow past, current and potential customers to read reviews of past experiences, check for a valid business license and verify the phone numbers and business addresses that are registered with the state in case a dispute arises.

Certified Home Inspector Status

If a Home Inspector has a status of Certified on their trust report, the company listed on the trust report has had their website, business license, address and customer phone number verified and confirmed by USHIA using a combination of government and private third-party databases. Although a business's status can change, this is the most reliable way to confirm that you are doing business with a reputable Home Inspector.

United States Home Inspectors Association only recommends doing business with a Home Inspector if they display the USHIA “Trusted” seal on their website.

Not Approved or Not Verified Home Inspector Status

If a Home Inspector has a status of Not Approved or Not Verified on their trust report, it simply means the company listed on the trust report has NOT had their website, business license, address and customer phone number verified by USHIA.

This status should in no way express or imply that USHIA believes that the company listed on the trust report is a fraud or that any of their information or licenses are not valid. This status only means that USHIA has not yet had a chance to review the company listed in the report. This most often occurs when a business has not returned requests for information from USHIA and the business has not submitted an update to their report or submitted a trust report application. If the business has submitted a trust report application and it was rejected for any reason, this status will also display.

Please keep in mind that the information we provide should not be considered reliable as much of it is submitted by previous customers and users and many businesses do not feel the need to provide information to reporting agencies like USHIA, for this reason all information provided should simply be used as an unreliable reference, you should confirm all information with the business itself before making any decisions.

We rely on information from customers and their experiences, so if you have had a negative experience, please share it with us by clicking the “Submit a Negative Review” button on the business's trust report page. Please keep in mind that we do not include positive review submissions on our trust reports as customers and/or review companies are commonly rewarded or paid for leaving reviews of this type. For this same reason, we also remove any negative reviews that we feel have been left by a competitor if they can not be verified.
