Property Inspect Rapid Re-Housing. We are part of the solution
The HUD Exchange is an online platform for providing program information, guidance, services, and tools to HUD’s community partners, including state and local governments, nonprofit organizations, Continuums of Care (CoCs), Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), tribes, and partners of these organizations.
Part of the HUD funding process includes standardised inspections of the property, but even before this is organised; Municipalities requires the correct documentation in place to be able to allocate funding. Once a property is identified, it takes up to 90 days to move a property through the manual systems. With hand-written notes and individual pictures to take and store; this was a very protracted process.
Municipalities within the HUD funded program looked to Property Inspect to help solve this issue with their inspection app and custom templates designed around the HUD process, these included several innovative options:
- enable the landlord to carry out a self inspection via a simple to use template including adding date/time referenced pictures
- enable the inspector to attend the property and complete the required template fields, add pictorial evidence and action points
- ability to assign actions for issues to be identified and then assigned for work to be completed on the property prior to the tenant taking up occupation
By using Property Inspect we have decreased the process by 50%, whilst improving standards.
