In any situation in which a client receives Homeownership Counseling and the purchase of a home is discussed, home inspection materials must be provided.

A client must be provided home inspection materials in the following situations:

  • A client is receiving pre-purchase/home buying counseling,
  • A client is attending a homebuyer education workshop, or
  • A client is receiving any other type of Homeownership Counseling (e.g. non-delinquency post-purchase, resolving or preventing mortgage delinquency or default, or reverse mortgage counseling) and the purchase of a home is covered as an option to address the client's housing need or problem.
