Currently, home inspectors in New Mexico can inspect residential and commercial properties without a license. On April 4, 2019 Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed House Bill 433 to establish a home inspection licensing law in the state of New Mexico. The New Mexico Home Inspector Licensing Board will require all home inspectors to earn their license by July 15, 2021.
