FHA STRUCTURAL INSPECTION ON EXISTING MOBILE HOMES

FHA STRUCTURAL INSPECTION ON MOBILE HOMES AND MANUFACTURED HOMES WHERE BUYER IS SEEKING FHA OR VA FINANCING

I recently sold a mobile home where financing was a factor. Recently we were stopped dead in our tracks when the underwriter called for a structural/engineering inspection and needed an Engineer Foundation Certificate.

Underwriting requires that the home must be placed on a permanent foundation per FHA Structural Inspection requirements and the HUD Permanent Foundations Guide. A recent trend, inspections of this type are being required even on conventional loans.

The cost for the inspection was $300.00 and the certificate was $150.00.

There are several companies that are certified to do this type of inspection and are easily found on the internet.

As of 1/9/19, the below link does not work. Please call me for contacts serving Florida for FHA structural inspections on manufactured and mobile homes.
