New Law and New Year: The California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA) to Hold Its 42nd Annual Conference

Posted February 7, 2018

The Conference features education and exhibits dedicated to home inspectors and the real estate inspection community.

Orange County, CA, February 2018: The California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA) will be holding its 42nd Annual Conference in April in Orange County and will feature, among other presentations, a presentation on California’s new pool safety barrier law, which was in effect as of January 1, 2018.

The law requires new or remodeled pools and spas to have two of seven child protective safety barriers.  While existing pools and spas are not required to add additional safety barriers, the California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA) suggests when it comes to protecting our young and vulnerable, all pools and spas should ensure appropriate safety barriers identified in the Pool Safety Act.

Ken Collins, a CREIA Certified Inspector and Chairman of CREIA indicates, “CREIA is offering this course via chapters, Realtors, and sending out information to California home inspectors whether they are members or not to ensure home inspectors understand this new legislation.”

The California Real Estate Inspection Association, CREIA is a non-profit association dedicated to using all its resources for the benefit of members and the home buying public they serve. CREIA is an association of members for members, founded on the principle that joining and working together can avail much more to advance the home inspection profession and protect the public than could possibly be accomplished individually.
