Why Do I Need A Manufactured Home Foundation Certification Inspection?
The Department of Housing and Urban Development, more commonly known as HUD, sets strict standards for the design, construction, and installation of manufactured homes to assure the quality, durability, safety, and affordability of manufactured homes.
HUD prohibits selling, leasing, or offering for sale or lease, homes that do not meet the standards. Civil and criminal penalties may be sought for violations.
