HUD Rolls Out New Inspection Model

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in early 2020 identified the need for an updated inspection model to better assess and address safety and quality conditions. The previous inspection format frequently failed to identify the extent of health and safety conditions, allowing poor quality properties to still pass inspection.

HUD has overhauled its Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) and initiated its new National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE). The model prioritizes health and safety, and emphasizes function over appearance to better reflect the actual condition of properties and encourage year-round maintenance rather than inspection preparation.

While HUD was eager to launch NSPIRE, property inspections were temporarily suspended in the first quarter of 2020 when the Covid-19 health crisis emerged, but they are due to resume.

  • 14-day inspection notifications will be sent out, beginning on Sept. 21
  • Physical unit inspections, property inspections and compliance inspections will resume on Oct. 5
