Regular Member Status

After successfully completing your probationary period with all the requirements attached to that status, you now find yourself as a Regular Member!

Also note that when the minimum number of houses have been inspected during the probationary period, the Builder is then put on a monitoring inspection program whereby the homes are inspected on a random basis (approximately 1 in 5).
