Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and Multifamily property owners/agents have the option to appeal a physical inspection score through two different processes: Technical Review or Database Adjustment.

In keeping with HUD’s decent, safe, sanitary and in good repair standard

  • Third party documentation submitted to appeal code compliance issues must cite the specific code to which it conforms
  • Third party documentation submitted to appeal repair compliance must cite manufacturer’s repair specification
  • All third-party documentation submitted from any craftsman and/or professional must be signed, dated, on company letter head with the license number of the craftsman and/or professional and the state from which the license was issued

This is effective on all appeals received on or after April 25, 2017.
