- Goals and mission of the agency selected to conduct the inspection
- Pre-inspection officer's rules of conduct and protocols
- The structure of the REAC inspection
- Ways to prepare the property for the inspection
REAC (Real Estate Assessment Center) is a division of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and conducts physical property inspections of the units that come under the purview of the HUD for ownership, insurance or subsidy. Public housing as well as multifamily assisted housing are covered under the scope of this inspection. Over 20,000 inspections are carried out every year by REAC, assessing vital factors such as safety, sanitization, need for repair work, and more.
Effective July 5, 2016, new rule changes have been implemented to the earlier REAC inspection process. REAC inspectors will now have the authority to cite anything as defective, regardless of the actual condition of the item. As per the new rules:
- All repairs must be made by using good quality materials, and without any flaw.
- Every defect will be recorded for quality inspection.
- Repairs will be made as per the industrial standards for that specific item.
- Brick wall cracks, door repair, downspouts, electrical panels, erosion, etc. qualify as general items that will undergo inspection.
Impact of the New REAC Rules
- Construction companies will find it more difficult to get away with low-quality repairs
- Obtaining REAC certification will become get tougher
- Buyers will get easier access to more reliable and credible bits of information
- Any fraudulent activity will get closely scrutinized.
- Housing quality will get elevated majorly
Hank Vanderbeek, MPA, CMI, will utilize this 60-minute webinar to give an insight into the actual need for conducting a REAC inspection. Attendee will be able to understand the rules better, and will be able to better prepare for the next REAC inspection while investing much lesser money than the usual. Upon the conclusion of this session, Attendee will have much better understanding about all of these aspects.
