Our NSPIRE Compliance Inspections for LIHTC and HOME Properties
are Thorough and Informative

Now that NSPIRE is the required inspection standard for the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program, state agencies must start using NSPIRE as the inspection protocol for monitoring. HOME, Housing Trust Fund, and other HUD CPD programs must implement NSPIRE by October 2024 and spend the interim getting ready for the transition. US Housing Consultants has developed a method of translating HUD REAC’s NSPIRE Standards into policies and procedures that can be used by Housing Finance Agencies, Participating Jurisdictions (PJs), and other monitoring agents.

We offer:
• Training for Monitoring Inspectors and Compliance Staff
• Assistance with updating QAPs, Compliance Manuals, and Monitoring Programs
• Training for Industry Stakeholders
• Outsourced NSPIRE Compliance Audits for Housing Finance Authorities and other

Get Ready for NSPIRE

Success with NSPIRE Inspections requires extensive experience and a results-based approach. Our experience spans two decades. We have inspected thousands of units for Housing Finance Authorities (HFAs) and investors, earning an industry-wide reputation for providing the most detailed reporting and thorough inspections.

Our Inspection experts perform NSPIRE Compliance Audits for HOME and LIHTC monitoring agencies thoroughly and fairly, complete with extensively detailed notes and photographs.

NSPIRE Inspections That Train and Explain

US Housing Consultant’s NSPIRE Compliance Inspections for HOME, Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), and Housing Trust Fund (HTF) Programs are designed to be results-oriented. Before the compliance audit, we show property owners and sponsors exactly what the NSPIRE Inspection process entails and encourage them to prepare for our inspection. During the inspection, our NSPIRE Inspection consultants take the time to explain why issues are being cited and when the housing agency requires proof of repairs.

Quite simply, while we provide the most comprehensive reporting available – we provide so much more than our competitors by ensuring that the deficiencies are understood, and everyone knows how to resolve the issue and prevent similar problems in the future.

A Complete Report of a Property’s Non-Compliance Issues

Our reports provide a vital tool for effective compliance monitoring. First, we break down every single issue with notes and photographs showing the exact location of the issue. Secondly, we show why the issue violates the NSPIRE protocol and how to identify similar issues.

And finally, our reports give you a precise guide to properly addressing the issues. Above all, NSPIRE inspection reports are about making properties better, safer, and more habitable.

Implementing NSPIRE Requires More Than Just New Forms

The NSPIRE inspection protocol represents a massive shift in inspection standards. It aligns standards with often complex building codes, integrated requirements for repairs – many of them due within 24 hours – and specific testing and inspection procedures. NSPIRE eliminates conditions considered normal wear and tear, and refocuses inspections on health, safety, and design standards. It’s a change in thinking, not just reporting. It’s a change of priorities, not just a new

Getting it right will take training and proper communication of the new standards with industry stakeholders and residents. Throughout all these challenges, US Housing Consultants can help with resources, training, or becoming your source for inspections and reporting.
