About Mobile Home Tie Down Inspections

What Is It?

A mobile home tie down is a metal strap that comes from the footings of the structure and wraps into the structure of the mobile home. This prevents uplift of the mobile home during a high wind event.

The History

Since hurricane Andrew, policies on mobile home tie downs have become much more strict to prohibit future damage.

Why Do I Need It?

It is quite common for these tie downs to become damaged and corroded overtime. Moreover, they could also be improperly installed. This is why FHA and VA mortgage loans require inspections on mobile home tie downs.

Governance

Permanent Foundation Guide for Manufactured Housing; September, 1996. If you have further questions on the specific requirements of the mobile home tie-downs, you can visit HUD.gov.

Easy to schedule and super patient with my situation, we had an unresponsive builder who avoided answering calls, waypoint was able to finally get our home inspected and found several issues we would have otherwise been unaware of.
