I'm appraising a new construction manufactured home for an FHA loan and this is my first time doing so. The mobile home sits on concrete block piers which do not appear to be mortared. However, there does appear to be "X" bracing from the frame to a concrete footing under each pier. There is no perimeter footing wall, just vinyl skirting.

I've read the Permanent Foundations Guide For Manufactured Housing, as well as a few threads on this site but so much of the information seems to be contradictory. Should the report just be made subject to verification/certification of the foundation by an engineer? Or is the appraiser required to supply an opinion as to the eligibility of the foundation as well?

I appreciate the replies.

All FHA manufactured home appraisals are subject to an Engineers Certification.
