As with title searches, title insurance and many other aspects of a property transaction in Mexico, one should not expect a great deal of similarity with those NOB. A home inspection by a qualified "home inspector" is another of those aspects typically missing. Having been associated with a franchise of one of the largest Home Inspection Companies in the US, there is a real disparity in qualifications and expertise NOB due to the lack of licensing or testing. In much the same manner as most anyone can claim to be a real estate agent in Mexico, I would guess that there are virtually no qualifications necessary to hang out a shingle claiming to be an inspector. Have no idea about the Yucatan but will use the Lake Chapala area as an example. To my knowledge, there is only one fellow offering such a service and he has written articles for MexConnect:
