I have a inspection coming up on mobile home and had my client tell me their agent reminded them about the extra engineering inspection ? Is this cert for the slab ?
The engineering required is for the tie-downs and foundation certifications.
Contact your local Manufactured Housing Dealer and ask them who engineers there tie-downs and use them.
For multiple engineering for tie-downs and foundations, you could contact

No it is a HUD permanent foundation certification. These are the HUD requirements for a permanent foundation https://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/administration/hudclips/guidebooks/4930.3G .
These certifications are performed by Engineers. If you search the BB you will find names of several you can work through to perform these.
As Marcel said https://www.foundationcerts.com/
I’ve done work for Harrison Engineering for around 6 years.
They’ve always paid me within 2 weeks for collecting info they need for “foundation certifications”.
Usually “mobile homes” are sold with an FHA loan or I get many for reverse mortgages that also require certs.
They will pay around $110 each plus 58 cents for each mile traveled over 20 miles round trip.
Call them 877-736-7327. They’ll send you a package including training docs with picture examples to get you started.
If you happen to sell them yourself, they pay 40% instead of the 25% if it’s an order thru them.
It takes me around 20 minutes on site & then you submit the info & pics thru their web based system.
Thanks for some real world info…have had 2 calls in the last 90 or so days, was quasi aware of general route to take if I was interested but have been to busy nailing down other things
I do these for Hayman and like it was stated takes about 20-30 minutes and they pay in 2 weeks. Pay averages $120-150 depending on distance. I always gather the needed information if I’m inspecting a mobile home just in case the need the certification this saves a trip. Ask the agent or homeowner if they need one most of the time they don’t know so I tell them to ask the lender and usually they find out that its required. I average a couple a month
