North Carolina licensed home inspectors can apply for a Licensed Home Inspector Subscription (LHIS) to Triangle MLS. This subscription allows home inspectors to schedule inspection appointments through the Showing Service (ShowingTime) and obtain lockbox access to properties in order to complete home inspections when sellers and listing brokers permit it. This subscription does not provide any access to the MLS system.
- The candidate may not be a REALTOR®. (REALTORS® seeking inspector access must join the MLS by affiliating with an MLS participating broker or appraiser.)
- The candidate must hold an active home inspector license, in good standing, from the North Carolina Home Inspector Licensure Board (NCHILB), as confirmed on the NCHILB website.
- The candidate must complete the Triangle MLS Licensed Home Inspector Subscriber Application.
- The candidate must pay the setup ($300) and quarterly fees ($66).
This subscription is available to natural persons; subscription is not by company. In the event any individual in a firm of licensed inspectors obtains a subscription, all the licensed inspectors in that firm active in Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Halifax, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Nash, Orange, Person, Vance, Wake and Warren counties of North Carolina must also be LHIS.
LHIS may not share their system login IDs/passwords, lockbox codes, or other access information with other LHIS, other licensed home inspectors, non-licensed staff or contractors (whether those individuals are in the same firm as the LHIS or not), or any other person under any circumstances.
