If you are a retailer of manufactured homes, you should know that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires inspections of manufactured home installations in all states where HUD administers the manufactured housing program (click to view a list of states with a HUD-Administered Manufactured Housing Program). Not only are these inspections mandatory, but the individuals performing the installations or inspections are required to meet certain critieria. This means that the manufactured homes that are shipped to and located in these states must be installed by an installer that is licensed and registered with HUD, and the inspections must be performed by a HUD - approved inspector, like NTA.
According to 24 CFR 3286.511, any individual or entity that meets at least one of the following is permitted to review and verify the installation of a manufactured home.
Also, the inspector must be independent of the manufacturer, the retailer, the installer, or any other person that has a monetary interest (other than the collection of the inspection fee) in the completion of the sale of the home.
NTA, Inc. has been around as long as the manufactured housing program, with both being established in 1976. We have long been recognized as the premiere third - party inspection agency in the manufactured housing industry, and have been heavily involved in the development of this installation program. NTA knows Manufactured Housing!
NTA is also one of only five private companies approved by HUD as both a DAPIA and IPIA provider, as well as staffing professional engineers and ICC Building Code Officials! We meet multiple criteria for performing Installation Inspections, and our expertise is widely recognized.
