Maryland Home Inspections
Home inspections are a great resource for home owners/buyers to learn valuable information about the home from the knowledge and expertise of a professional home inspector. Home inspections are invaluable to the homeowner for objective and accurate information regarding the home’s systems and components.
The standard home inspection report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors; and the foundation, basement, and structural components.
HUD 203(K) Inspections
203(k) consultants are designated by FHA to act as a consultant to home purchasers who obtain a mortgage loan to either buy a home in need of repair (the loan covers the cost of both the home and the repairs) or to improve their existing home. CMC, as the 203(k) consultant, conducts a walkthrough with the homeowner/buyer and then completes the necessary work write up to identify required repairs, renovations, upgrades required by FHA to meet minimum property standards and to address family preferences. CMC ensures the property complies with required/eligible repair guidelines. In addition to the work write up, when necessary, CMC also completes a feasibility study, prepares architectural exhibits, and specifications for repair.
HUD Housing Quality Standards Inspections
CMC provides HUD HAS inspections for single and multifamily units. Each inspection is performed by a certified HQS inspector knowledgeable of HUD regulations. The HQS inspection is an evaluation of the condition of the unit, more specifically the inspection report identifies the minimum Housing Quality Standards of the unit regarding health and safety issues.
The report is submitted to the property owner for their use in identifying needed repairs or modifications to ensure minimum health and safety standards.
