Click To Endorse Non-Home Inspection DisclosureI, Todd Miller (HomeSpec Certified Inspections, Inc), am a HUD-approved Consultant. My role is to inspect the property and prepare a work write-up that specifies the type of repair and the cost of each work item to be used in an FHA 203(k) renovation loan. In my role as a Consultant on this project, I am not acting as a Home Inspector. FHA does not perform Home Inspections. Home Inspections give the buyer more detailed information about the overall condition of the home prior to purchase. This can include evaluating the physical condition and mechanical systems, identifying items that need to be repaired or replaced, etc. For details on a Home Inspection, please refer to form HUD-92564-CN. While Home Inspections are recommended, FHA does not require them.IP Address*Client Signature*Typing your name here is a legal signature Submit This iframe contains the logic required to handle AJAX powered Gravity Forms.
