I am currently buying a home in tn. I am getting a reverse mortgage purchase. They require tie downs on manufactured houses. I paid for a inspection when I got the inspection the inspector did not list any tie downs or absence of any. What I got out of the inspection was that they were not structural engineers. Shouldn’t the inspector have noted if they (tiedowns) were there or not?
Just curious, Who is “They”?
FHA requires tie-downs that are approved by a licensed engineer. Some lending institutions required tie-downs but not necessarily approved by engineers, just confirmation.
A good inspector would note whether there are tie-downs present, but not necessarily that they meet any type of standards.

They can provide verification services but they should be approved by your lender.
