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.

They were quick to respond to my first call. Our inspector, Anthony, was on time, polite, respectful, informative and thorough. He was also happy to answer questions, no matter how small. I had occasion to go into the office and was just as pleased with my dealings in there.I will be calling them again. My real estate was impressed with them as well so I think they will be getting many referrals.Thank you for great service!!

The young man was spot on, precise and had a great personality. I actually spoke with him via WhatsApp and my realtor was there for the inspection. I called your man "INSPECTOR GADGET", and we both laughed because he recognized and liked "INSPECTOR GADGET". He did a very thorough-excellent inspection. Please thank him for me again....
