This Part 5 of our 5-part series called “20 Most Impactful REAC Defects”. With over 20 years of continual experience in the UPCS/REAC arena and having reviewed thousands of REAC reports, we have compiled the 20 most important and commonly cited deficiencies. We have highlight four in each of the five inspectable areas: Site, Exterior, Systems, Common Areas and Units.
These are the 4 most detrimental and common defects associated within the “units”. There is some good news – regardless of the number of defects found within any specific unit, the most HUD can deduct is approximately 2 points. In the unfortunate event that HUD cited 5, 6 or even 10 points worth of defects within a certain unit, you will only be deducted the maximum cap of 2 points.
