REAC Inspections - Are You Ready?

Millions of families live in housing that is insured or subsidized by the federal government. To insure decent and safe housing, the government conducts physical inspections (REAC).

STEP - 1 (Inspection)

Unit inspection - bathroom, kitchen, bedroom/s, hallway, patio/balcony, living & dining room, basement if attached, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems.

Common Areas - community room, kitchen, hallway, basement, utility closet, office/s, restroom/s, laundry room, storage area, workshop and mechanical room.

Systems - electrical, HVAC, boiler, hot water heater, sewer lines, auxiliary lighting, sprinkler system, fire suppression, plumbing and exhaust system, exit and emergency lighting.

Exterior - walls, roof if accessible, inspectable shed, gutters, downspouts, lighting, canopy, patio/porch, landings, foundations, stairs/steps, windows and doors.

Site - grounds, parking areas, sidewalk/walkway, playground equipment, mailboxes, signage and fencing.

STEP - 2 (Repair)

Together we will formulate an action plan to finalize and coordinate responsibilities between your staff and Reac Ready, LLC. It is recommended Reac Ready, LLC handle the complete project on a "Turn-Key" basis. This option allows your staff to stay focused on their daily responsibilities and work orders. It helps prevent backlogs in the system due to the staff trying to prepare the facility for the inspection. Next, we start the repairs/correction of the deficiencies by using our REAC trained maintenance technicians. Our maintenance technicians are unique in that they are trained to identify and repair Level – 2 and level – 3 deficiencies. By utilizing the inspection report to correct only the HUD deficiencies, your company will get the best value for its investment. When we complete the repairs, your property will be Reac Ready for the inspection.

STEP - 3 (Inspection Escort)

Reac Ready will provide a professional or certified inspector as an escort during your HUD REAC inspection.
