Occupations Code chapter 1102’s express authorization for a real estate inspector to provide an opinion on real estate’s “plumbing systems” likely includes a camera inspection; thus, to the extent the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners’ rule requires a real estate inspector to get a plumber’s license to perform a job that is within the scope of the real estate inspector’s license, a court would most likely consider the rule invalid.
