Interior Inspections Details


Damages like mold and mildew, roofing system leakages and pests are not apparent from the exterior of a home. Without immediate action, these problems could become costly and quite complicated to fix; resulting in substantial value loss. However if discovered early, the overall cost and value decrease is rather minimal.

Conveyance Condition

Evaluate the condition of the property's systems, components, while searching for evidence of environmental and/or health and safety hazards.

  • work orders for an Initial Secure, HUD Property Inspection Report (HPIR), and Winterization assigned and fulfilled within 24 hours of assignment
  • progression is tracked and monitored internally by a Property Specialist
  • estimate the cost to repair or replace missing or damaged components
  • note if the property is occupied; if so, attempt to contact the occupants
Initial Inspection

An inspector will evaluate the home's components and condition upon arrival.

  • establish if the property meets Minimum Property Standards, as dictated by HUD
  • fully document and photograph all components, appliances and systems of the home; including present/missing appliances, well components, cooper piping, wiring and any evidence of vandalism.
  • HUD approved locks are installed and repair estimates are offered
Health and Safety Hazards and Emergency Repairs

Here are some common health and safety hazards resolved during the initial visit:
  • cap exposed electric wires
  • roll and secure cable wires with plastic cable ties
  • remove broken glass
  • plate electrical outlets
  • secure trip hazards

If there is a hazard or an emergency that the inspector cannot resolve at the time of visit the inspector will contact the Property Specialist via telephone and report the emergency.

  • broken windows
  • flooding basements
  • roof leaks
  • fire damage
  • faulty stairs and hand rails

Emergency work orders are completed within 24 hours of notification. Emergencies involving flooding and water infiltration are resolved the day of notification.

System Testing

With the aid of a gas powered generator and compressor, an inspector will check the functionality of the home's systems to determine if they are operational.

The heating, cooling, electrical, plumbing, gas, appliances, septic and well are tested during this phase of the inspection.

  • fully document and photograph all components and systems of the home, including the condition of the roof, foundation, water source, appliances, and utilities.
  • document and provide cost estimates for damages, if any.
  • photograph any posted outstanding code violations, pending litigation, condemnation or demolition orders.
  • complete a winterization, if necessary
All reports submitted are reviewed for consistency, accuracy and thoroughness.
