(a) Upon a written request to the Building Division, an individual, who has a current, valid Building Division issued registration under this Chapter as a home improvement general or a limited contractor, and who is employed as a full-time inspector by the Building Division, or a Ohio Board of Building Standards certified Building Division, or a Ohio county health Building Division, in such a related field of inspection, may place their Building Division issued registration in a continuous employment escrow status with the Building Division.
(b) The Building Division issued registration-holder shall be employed as a full-time inspector as described heretofore for the duration of the employment escrow status. In addition, the registration-holder will also be exempt from the payment of any fee or renewal requirement of the Building Division for such registration, but only for the period of time in which their Building Division issued registration is in this employment escrow status.
(c) A Building Division issued registration that is in employment escrow status shall become invalid, unless its validity is re-established within ninety (90) calendar days after the cessation of such required inspection employment status of the registration-holder. Re-establishment of the registration shall occur with a written request to the Building Division for either reactivation or elective suspension (escrow) of the Building Division issued registration already in employment escrow status. In addition, the payment of the prescribed fees in the fee schedule and all of the requirements for re-establishment of the registration with the Building Division for either a registration renewal or elective suspension (escrow) status, as applicable, shall be required.
