Alabama Building Commission Logo
To perform home inspections in the State of Alabama, a person MUST be licensed by the Alabama Building Commission.

This requires that the inspector pass a test, pay an annual license fee and carry Errors & Ommission (E&O) Insurance. There are illegal inspectors out there. Unlicensed inspectors may come cheap, but be careful, you have no recourse.
