Requirements

FHA Anchoring Modifications are required to establish compliance with the guidelines noted in the Permanent Foundation Guide For Manufactured Housing, Sept. 1996 (Ref: FHA HUD-7584/7587 HUD-4145.1 Rev. 2).

NOTE: Additions to the property (porches, decks, deck covers, room additions, etc) must be installed in accordance with HUD Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (CFR3280) in order to not compromise the integrity of the existing structure.

  • Porches above 30 and staircases with more than 3 steps must have a handrail.
  • All additions must be self-supporting to the ground where they meet the original structure, in order to "not affect the structural integrity of the existing structure".
  • Water must not stream, stand, puddle, or pool under the structure.
  • Tongue and axles must be removed in order for structure to be considered permanent.
  • We do not need to be the contractor for the structural part of the certification. You are free to do the work yourselves or hire your favorite contractor.
