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

Waypoint did a great job with my inspection on my first home. I’ve had another inspection with a different company before for a different house I almost purchased. I was not happy with that company and they were even giving me jobs to do, such as checking outlets for power etc, to help them make the inspection faster. It made me sort of uncomfortable because I’m not an inspector and did not want to feel I am missing something because I don’t know what I’m doing. I did not have to worry about that with Waypoint obviously. My inspector was very thorough. Great attention to detail. He took his time to get everything right while I was able to talk with my family and realtor about the house. I was given a detailed report the same day. Highly recommended. Thank you!
