|The Mississippi Housing Institute uses its best efforts to determine a builder/remodeler's qualifications for certification as a Certified Professional Builder/Remodeler. While the program recognizes the professionalism of a builder/remodeler, the Mississippi Housing Institute does not make any warranty or representation, expressed or implied, to homebuyers/remodelers or others and has not inspected the construction of any home and, therefore, does not and cannot address the specific quality of a new home. The homebuyer/remodeler is encouraged to discuss the program with his or her Certified Professional Builder and to contact the Mississippi Housing Institute for more specific information about the program.|
