Be Better Prepared to Get a High Score on Your Next REAC Inspection

The new law passed by the Congress means harsher consequences for failing REAC scores—including money penalties, abatement of the Section 8 contract, and judicial receivership. Therefore, it’s more important than ever that housing industry professionals be well prepared to meet the REAC inspectors’ expectation and work actively to score high on the REAC inspection.

In this webinar, our expert speaker Hank Vanderbeek, MPA, CMI will cover an overview of the REAC inspection process—from the mission and goals of the agency charged with running the inspections to the pre-inspection inspector rules of protocols and conduct. You will understand the structure of a REAC inspection protocol and the ways the property can properly prepare for the inspection.  It also covers the items that are most important in preparing for the REAC inspection with photos of actual defects.  Scoring structure is touched on to impart a basic understanding of the process REAC utilizes to generate a score for the inspection, and lastly it presents the recent rule changes.

This is an overview program that covers a wide range of topics quickly that are usually reserved for a full day training, to be followed up by a second seminar, REAC Inspections Overview II for a more detailed coverage of the subjects and an even better understanding of the role of the property in preparing adequately and thoroughly for the REAC inspection without breaking the bank, and to gain full understanding of important appeals rights.
