HUD: FHA INFO #18-27: Elimination of FHA Inspector Roster
July 3, 2018
Source: HUD (FHA INFO #18-27 full version)
Today, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) published in the Federal Register, a final rule (Docket No. FR-5457-F-02) that streamlines the inspection requirements for FHA single family mortgage insurance by eliminating the regulations for the FHA Inspector Roster (Roster).
This final rule — which follows a February 6, 2013, proposed rule — recognizes the sufficiency and quality of inspections carried out by International Code Council (ICC) certified Combination Inspectors (CI) and Residential Combination Inspectors (RCI) and other qualified individuals. As a result, FHA acknowledges there is no longer a need to maintain and administer its own standardization process for inspectors.
This final rule becomes effective August 2, 2018.
