New REAC Rules, NSPIRE Demonstration Program, and Creating Effective Self-Inspections


No matter how experienced you are, it’s tough to get your units in decent, safe, and sanitary conditions. Especially while overcoming daily challenges such as tenant damage, unreported damage, razor-thin budgets, and aging properties is tough. Combine those challenges with oversight from agencies like REAC, and it can become stressful and feel like a thankless task.


Developing a Compliance Driven Maintenance Policy


In affordable housing, there are rules and regulations which govern eligibility, how much rent a family pays, and many other aspects. Many companies have specialists who monitor compliance with these requirements or outsource compliance to experts like US Housing Consultants.

But when it comes to maintenance and inspections, the standards are less specific, and open to interpretation, and frequently – sub-standard results. With HUD’s NSPIRE initiative to include requirements for self-inspections with electronic reporting, now is the time for owners and managers to develop a compliance-driven maintenance policy.


The Importance of Leadership in Property Maintenance

The most effective maintenance policies include procedures for utilizing “a second set of eyes” who check the quality of maintenance performance in real-time, just like we do with LIHTC and HUD file approvals. How do you implement this sort of oversight while avoiding micro-management? How do make employees feel helped with the oversight and not hounded?
