SECURING

 

Install a Kwikset No. 400T, key code 44535 or equivalent on front and rear entry doors.  Provide keys to the M&M contractor.  Replace cylinder in lock.  If necessary, replace door lockset in the existing bore.  If other doors are secure through being locked or bolted, even if keys are not available, do no other securing.  Do not use a slide installation, brace, or any other securing method, which may damage the woodwork or door.  The mortgagee will be held accountable for any damage caused by incorrect securing.  Garage and outbuildings should be secured through use of padlock and hasps unless a cylinder lock with key available is in place; do not rekey. 

 

Swimming Pools -

Do not drain in-ground pools.  Add 2 gallons of household bleach (e.g. Clorox or Purex) or chlorine to pool. A cover must be installed to prevent access.  Pool cover must be constructed with 6x6 wire mesh and 6 mil visqueen or polyurethane over 2 by 6 at 16 O.C.  Cover must be capable of supporting at least 50 pounds.  Fence doors/gates must be padlocked.  See page 20 of attachment 3 for diagram. 

 

 

Securing Cost Schedule

 
 

 

BOARDING

 

Use inch plywood, cut to fit openings.  See plywood-boarding diagram on page 22, 23, 24 and 25. Diagrams on these pages indicate to use plywood for doors and 5/8 plywood for security doors.

 

When there is no primary entry door, install security door.  Construct door for main entrance (5/8 inch plywood with hasp / padlock, and hinges.  See plywood boarded door diagram on page 23. If a swamp cooler is removed, board the opening without authorization from the M&M contractor to prevent interior damage.

WINTERIZATION

 

 

Winterization is required from September 1 through April 30.  Properties should be winterized only once unless otherwise directed by the M&M contractor.  Re-winterization may be required if the initial winterization is found unsatisfactory and the mortgagee obtains prior approval from the M&M contractor.

Properties must be winterized from September 1 through April 30.  Properties should be winterized only once.  The property may be re-winterized only if the initial winterization is deemed to be no longer effective and the mortgagee obtains prior approval from the M&M contractor.

 

Domestic Water

 

On all properties test for system integrity.  Turn the water on to inspect for leakage, and shut down.  If problems are noted, inform the M&M contractor at the time of conveyance.

 

If the water supply source is a public system, have the utility turn off the supply at the street (key/stop box) if possible.  Turn off the water inside the house.  Do not cut any water lines or remove water meters.  (A non-reimbursable charge may be made by the water utility for unauthorized water meter removal).  Most water departments, particularly the City of Minneapolis, must be notified when water is turned off so that a final meter reading can be done.  Be sure to do this.  If the heating system is hydronic or hot water baseboard heating, the water must not be turned off (see below).

 

If the water supply is a private well, turn off the well at the breaker panel and tape off the breaker.  Disconnect the water supply line between the house and pressure tank and install a hose bib on the pressure tank side of the break.  Tag the hose bib "For Water Testing."

 

Drain and blow air through all domestic hot and cold water lines, the hot water heater, water softener tank, brine tank, well water storage tank and/or the well water captive air bank, and dishwasher, if any.  Pour one-quart maximum of non-toxic antifreeze (propylene-glycol) into each drain: tubs, shower, laundry, floor, sinks, etc.

 

Remove water from toilet tank and bowl.  Pour a minimum of one gallon of non-toxic antifreeze (propylene-glycol) into each toilet bowl and a small amount of antifreeze in tanks if the water was not completely removed.

 

Tape all faucets to the open position. Mark all drains, fixtures, appliances, devices in the system with the statement "Winterized **** Do Not Use", and date.

 

Dry Heat System

 

The heating system should be operating and the thermostat left at a 60-degree setting.  In the event major repair or replacement would be necessary in order to make the heating system operational, contact the M&M contractor for instructions.

 

Wet Heat (Hydronic or Hot Water Baseboard) Systems

 

The winterization requirements outlined above for domestic water apply except that water should not be shut off to or in the property.  Test for system security.  Pressurize the system with an air compressor to 35 pounds and inspect for leakage.  System must hold air pressure with no leakage for a minimum of one-half hour.

 

Drain the boiler and all heating loops.  Repair, replace, or install (as necessary to comply with state health department requirements) a Reduced Pressure Zone (RPZ) valve.  Such a valve shall be installed between the furnace and the main feed water supply, adjacent to the furnace.

 

Fill the boiler and all heating loops with a non-toxic antifreeze (propylene-glycol) solution designated for hot water heating systems (with anti-rust ingredient) tested to a freeze point of -40 degrees Fahrenheit, or lower.  Isolate loops or bleed in sequence to ensure proper flushing through the lines.  Bleed all vents in the system to ensure that all air has been voided from the system.

 

Return the heating system to normal operating temperature and pressure.  Check the entire system for proper operation.  Leave heat on.  Tape the furnace electrical switch to the "on" position. Tape card above the switch stating, "Do Not Remove Tape. Do Not Turn Off.

 

Set the thermostat at 60-degrees.  In the event major repair or replacement would be necessary in order to make heating system operational, contact the M&M contractor for instructions.

 

Steam Heat Systems

 

Determine if the system is operable and if there are any leaks.  Report this information to HUD at time of conveyance.  Then shut down the heating system.  Pressurize the system with an air compressor to 35 pounds and inspect for leakage.  System must hold air pressure with no leakage for a minimum of one-half hour.  Note:  A steam heat system will have radiators with valves at the bottom of the radiator; a careful determination as to whether the system is hot water or steam must be made.

 

Sump Pumps

 

Where a sump pump is used to keep basements or crawl space dry, check to make sure the sump pump is operable and operating to assure that the property is not damaged by flooding.

 

Utilities

 

Electricity and gas (for heating) are to remain on.  Propane and oil service must be placed on automatic fill.  Billing to utilities should be in the mortgagee's name until conveyance of the property to HUD.  We will activate billing in HUD's name within 5 days after receipt of the copy of the Part A in the field office.  The mortgagee should not transfer billing to HUD.  In all cases, the mortgagee should pay the bill and obtain reimbursement for utility costs that cover the date of the conveyance until the end of that utility's billing cycle.
