An FHA inspection checklist is used by HUD-approved property appraisers to assess the market value of a home and inspect its livability. An FHA home inspection is required to receive an FHA loan. An FHA appraisal checklist captures the following information:
Market value information
- Visual inspection of property with photos
- Comparable sales and relevant photos
- Location and street-map data
Health and safety information
- Environmental hazards and health risks
- Structural integrity of the home
- Electrical installation and utilities
- Lead-based paint and other chemical hazards
FHA appraisals require significant photo evidence along with detailed notes of the property. A full report is then typically provided to the lender in order to satisfy FHA loan requirements before a buyer can purchase the home.
