Also referred to as Presidential FEMA Inspections, FEMA inspections are performed in Presidentially-declared disaster areas. A visual, exterior inspection is completed to evaluate the damage incurred by a property due to natural disasters. These can be conducted on any property--occupied or vacant, current or delinquent. Safeguard offers three types of FEMA inspections:
Standard Property Inspection
A standard visual, exterior inspection is performed. Inspectors do not access the property’s interior.
Standard FEMA Inspection
Inspectors seek information specific to the natural disaster. Flood lines, damages and property accessibility are a few of the conditions addressed. Inspectors also attempt to determine the mortgagor’s intent to repair or rebuild the residence.
Extended FEMA Questionnaire
In addition to the information gained in the standard FEMA inspection, the inspectors also provide information concerning the property and surrounding neighborhood. Mold and repairs to the dwelling will be reported to the client, as will the statuses of neighboring homes.
