Friday, June 16, 2023 - 2:45PM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today announced the pending publication in the Federal Register of the Final Inspections Standards Notice for the National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE). The notice covers HUD-assisted housing and a seperate release details inspectable items. NSPIRE strengthens HUD’s physical condition standards, which were formerly known as the Uniform Physical Condition Standard (UPCS) and Housing Quality Standards (HQS). The final standards include changes made after comments were received. HUD published the final NSPIRE rule in May and following this publication, HUD will publish notices on the final scoring and administrative notices. Both are expected this summer.

The May 16 episode of the Tax Credit Tuesday podcast featured Michael Novogradac discussing NSPIRE and other compliance issues with Novogradac principal and director of multifamily compliance Stephanie Naquin.
