Home Inspections

Home Forward inspects its public housing apartments at least once every year. Make sure your home is ready by always keeping it clean and neat.

Home Forward may also conduct special inspections to follow up on complaints and reports of problems. In addition, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development conducts quality control inspections from time to time to ensure that Home Forward is doing a good job.

Tips for the annual Home Forward inspection:

  • Follow good housekeeping practices to keep the unit in good condition. See the Housekeeping Tips page in this handbook for detailed advice.
  • Report all maintenance items to the property manager before the inspection — they may be repairable before the inspection occurs.
  • Make sure the inspector has access to all rooms.
  • Please have your pet contained or restrained during the inspection.
