Many times when the buyer of a manufactured home is getting an FHA, VA loan. The FHA or VA loan underwriter requires that the manufactured home has been placed on a permanent foundation according to HUD standards. This requirement is becoming more common, even with conventional (private) loans.

You (the home owner or buyer) are then required to hire a professional licensed engineer to certify that the manufactured home was installed according to the “HUD Permanent Foundations Guide for Manufactured Homes”, dated 1996. Our professional licensed engineers provide the foundation certification you need in order to complete the sell of your home.

What is the engineer’s certificate?

On VA & FHA-insured loans, the foundation on all manufactured must meet a certain criteria of structural stability and an Engineering Certification is required.
