Manufactured Home Foundation Certifications

Foundation CertificationsIf you are selling or buying a manufactured home, then most likely a foundation certification will be required. For all FHA and VA loans, an engineer's foundation certification is required that states that the home is placed on a permanent foundation that complies with the "HUD Permament Foundation Guide for Manufatured Homes", dated 1996 by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

I have partnered with the engineers at Foundation Certifications to provide a turn-key foundation certification and structual engineering report service to you. You may place your order by contacting me or go online by going to http://www.FoundationCerts.com/order.
