HUD Inspections--The More You Know!

Whether you own a modular, mobile or manufactured home, The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) inspections are a key factor in ensuring the safety of your foundation. What does a HUD inspection do? A HUD inspection's purpose is to conduct a structural examination to see if the manufactured home is tied down permanently, that it is unable to drift off the foundation, and ensuring that the crawlspace and basements are secure and sealed off to prevent flooding or damage. HUD outlines and enforces the standards for the construction, design, performance, and installation of homes to guarantee their quality, durability, affordability, and safety. The construction and safety standards apply to all homes produced after June 15, 1976. Now, what if your home was built before June 15, 1976? Homes built before June 15, 1976, even with changes, upgrades or remodeling performed on it, do not meet the HUD standards and are not eligible for a compliant submission with the HUD Code. FHA (Federal Housing Administration) does not insure mortgages on manufactured homes built prior to June 15, 1976. Most other mortgage insurance firms follow FHA's policy.
