The webinar by 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 conducting the inspections to the pre-inspection inspector rules of conduct and protocols to the structure of a REAC inspection, the ways the property can properly prepare for the inspection. It also covers the items that are most important in preparing for the 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.
Effective July 5, 2016 REAC inspectors can cite anything they want as a defect—whether it’s broken or not. This new change simply throws the inspection rules out the window.
This puts millions of housing communities at high risk of low scores and penalties during a REAC inspection. The U.S. housing industry is in a shock following this new rule.
This is an overview program that covers a wide range of topics quickly that are usually reserved for a full day of 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 analyzing of the role of the property in preparing properly and thoroughly for the REAC inspection without breaking the bank, and to have full understanding of important appeals rights.
