FHA & VA Requirements for Manufactured Home Foundation Inspections


This is the criteria we look for during our inspection:

  • Piers, footings or concrete slab foundation of sufficient size and number to evenly distribute the weight of the manufactured home.
  • Anchoring devices or tie-downs, permanently attached to foundation.
  • A continuous permanent crawl space perimeter enclosure (skirting), with proper ventilation.
  • Vapor barrier beneath the manufactured home, and other measures to prevent water from entering the crawl space, and diversion of surface water from the residence.
  • Towing hitch and running gear (including tongues, axles, wheels and lights) must be removed.
