The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is soliciting feedback on version 1.3 of the National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE) protocol. NSPIRE is intended to replace the Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS) once it is adopted. TDHCA encourages stakeholders in affected programs to familiarize themselves with the proposed standards and to provide feedback to HUD, as needed.

The proposed standards, as well as instructions for providing comment, are available here.
