Public Housing Property Inspection Scores

All public housing projects and privately owned rental properties with project-based Section 8 contracts are inspected every 1 to 3 years by HUD’s Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC). The mission of REAC is to insure that HUD’s multifamily portfolio is well maintained, free of health and safety risks for tenants and to prevent waste, fraud and abuse in HUD’s multifamily programs.

The highest REAC score possible is 100 points. Points are awarded in five inspectable areas: site, building exteriors, common areas, systems and units. Points may be weighted differently for different property types. For example, an urban property with little to no grounds might have a score weighted more on the building exteriors and less on the site whereas a suburban property with acres of land will be weighted more on the site review.

The frequency of REAC inspections is determined by the last REAC score a property received. If a property receives a REAC score of 90 or higher, the next REAC inspection will be scheduled in 3 years. Scores of 80 to 89 require re-inspection in 2 years and scores of 60 to 79 require re-inspection in a year.

A score of less than 60 is considered failing. Scores of 31 to 59 require re-inspection in 60 days and scores of 30 or lower are referred to a HUD Enforcement Center for corrective action.
