I think, unless that is in some city code or county, FHA says nothing about this as far as a safety hazard...... Just needs to comply with all codes etc. You need to determine if it affects the value/marketabiliy

It is standard and customary in this area for the pools to have enclosed cages. (no fence requirred) These areas under the screened enclosures are the lanai (patio). Are we talking one and the same? If so, they I have done 100's of them as FHA.

Send a PM to Headsurfer asking him to update the information. He will verify with the ASC roster and make the change.

Fences are to keep out non residents. I don't see a safety issue as it would be defined by FHA. BTW, FHA does not enforce local building codes.

If it's a health and safety hazzard then definately call it. I am FHA and when in doubt call it. I had one where the house had no rear fencing but large dogs on frayed ropes and the house was adjacent to a parking lot used for the Movie theaters and told them to fence the property which the bank insisted on before they would loan. The bank agreed but some of my associates had a fit. But it was a definate hazzard imo at that time.
