Jun 9, 2022

N.C. Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey issued the following statement today in response to recent media reports citing building inspection delays on new construction:

“While we are seeing a very busy time in the construction of new homes, our office remains steadfast in providing any assistance we can to protect consumers and prevent fraud,” Commissioner Causey said. “We are also working to bring third-party contract inspectors into North Carolina to assist inspection agencies.

We were very proactive during the pandemic to make sure inspectors stayed on the list of essential workers to help sustain the construction industry, and we will continue to do all that we can to make sure there are no unnecessary delays in the inspection process.”
