REAC Inspection: Achieving Success Without Breaking the Bank (BKAHAASWBB)

REAC Inspection: Achieving Success Without Breaking the Bank

It has been repeatedly observed time and again that properties focus on the wrong things in preparation for a REAC inspection. You face difficulties at the time of REAC physical inspection and at times you are uncertain about its rules and guidelines. Moreover, many REAC defect definitions are confusing and thus are subject to inconsistent interpretations by REAC Supervisors (Quality Assurance Inspectors), contract REAC inspectors and property managers. Too many important and high scoring defect definitions remain on the books and continue to give properties fits and failing scores.


This handbook, REAC Inspection: Achieving Success Without Breaking the Bank, is a minefield of information, tips and tools for owners, managers and maintenance staff of properties that are sub­ject to HUD REAC physical inspections. Based on the updated rules and guidelines by HUD, it is an easy to understand manual for preparing for and doing well on REAC inspections. In this book, the rules have been reformatted, corrected, summa­rized and combined in such a way that you can easily understand and apply to your particular situation. It also contains recent changes to the Federal Register and REAC internal policy, replacing some of the subjective defect definitions with objective criteria, and other clarifications.

Authored by Hank Vanderbeek, an expert in REAC inspections, appeals and repair work, the book will prepare property owners and managers to score high in any REAC inspection. REAC Inspection: Achieving Success Without Breaking the Bank contains Hank’s cumulative experience of several years conducting thousands of residential and commercial REAC inspections as a former HUD-certified inspector, and aims to place a useful tool in the hands of the owners, managers and main­tenance staff of properties that are facing REAC physical inspections. It will not only help you survive a REAC inspection but do well every time.
