HUD postpones REAC inspections, MORs


Posted On: March 14, 2020

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced it has postponed inspections for Multifamily properties. HUD updated the “Questions and Answers for Office of Multifamily Housing Stakeholders” document Friday evening, March 13, 2020.

HUD officials made this decision after the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic on March 11, 2020.

Under the “Property Reviews and Inspections” on page six of the new document, it reads, “Until further notice, Multifamily is postponing all REAC property inspections and Management and Occupancy Reviews for all Multifamily properties. Where there is an exigent circumstance or reason to believe that there is a threat to life or property at a specific location, inspections will be conducted by HUD quality assurance inspectors in compliance with CDC guidelines. Please note, this answer supersedes the initial guidance offered in the first version of this document on 3/12/20.

Until further notice, Multifamily is postponing all REAC property inspections and Management and Occupancy Reviews for all Multifamily properties.
