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
