PRACTICAL TIPS FOR REAC
"Do you lay awake at night thinking of your next HUD REAC Inspection? Do you break out in cold sweat when the REAC scheduler makes that dreaded call to schedule an inspection appointment?” How can these reactions be avoided?
Scott Reithel CPM NAHP-e; an executive affordable property manager with over 40 years of experience and his business partner; Bobby Edwards, CPGM; a regional maintenance coordinator and company maintenance analyst, will share their vast field experiences they have collected over more than twenty years directly working with their "teams" to successfully prepare for REAC inspections. Scott has been instrumental, during the 1996-97 HUD REAC "test" property inspections and throughout the 20 year old history of REAC, in challenging and working closely with HUD REAC executive staff to modify unsatisfactory REAC inspection Protocols while also maintaining the integrity of the Program.
Scott and Bobby very much look forward to interacting with participants on the following areas:
History, Purpose and the Politics of HUD REAC inspections.
How to work with your property owner and/or asset manager in developing a REAC plan of action. (Is it always beneficial to ownership for management to receive a 90+ score?)
Working with your "team" is like preparing for the major League World Series. We will discuss how to effectively coach your "team" in order to bring the trophy home as well as who should be the members of your "team"?
What are the critical site, common, mechanical and apartment areas to inspect to achieve the desired score?
Do inspection appeals work and how do you process them?
What does the future of HUD REAC Protocol appear like?
Scott and Bobby welcome questions from all course participants on any REAC experience. We highly recommend participants discuss potential REAC issues with staff not able to attend the class in order for you to also meet their needs.
