From REAC: Until further notice, the Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) is postponing all property inspections on all Public-housing, Multi-family and Servicing Mortgagee properties.
HUD recently announced that PHAs can register for its new voluntary demonstration that will test new inspection protocols. PHAs participating in the demonstration, known as NSPIRE, will receive one inspection per property during the demonstration period.
In March, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report on improvements for HUD’s physical inspection process. The report followed a provision in the 2017 Consolidated Appropriations Act that instructed the GAO to report on the Real Estate Assessment Center’s (REAC) methods for identifying property deficiencies, selecting and training inspectors, and their oversight of these processes.
