MODERATE REHABILITATION

FOREWORD

This Guide is designed to assist Rural Development personnel and potential applicants in determining the feasibility and acceptability of existing multi-family residential properties for moderate rehabilitation. The moderate rehabilitation quality and performance criteria contained in this Guide are significantly different from those Rural Development’s development standards that apply to substantial rehabilitation. This Guide should be used in conjunction with Rural Development's Design Guide and Manual of Acceptable Practice (MAP). Although this Guide, the Design Guide, and the MAP are not mandatory documents, the construction and development plans for each moderately rehabilitated multi-family development should address the liveability and marketability objectives contained in these documents. Substantial deviation from these objectives will be evaluated by our appraisal process and reflected in the present market value.

CHAPTER 1 GENERAL USE


100 APPLICATION
The criteria in this Guide apply to the moderate rehabilitation of existing multi-family residential properties. The range of moderate rehabilitation covered by this Guide is broad. In a general context this Guide will aid in establishing the feasibility of a property considered for moderate rehabilitation. It also provides information which is useful in preliminary planning, evaluation and development work. Properties needing substantial rehabilitation must meet the same Rural Development’s Development Standards as new multi-family housing.
101 GENERAL
These guidelines provide minimum performance requirements and acceptability criteria for the moderate rehabilitation of dwellings to be financed by the Rural Development. The guidelines are intended to serve as an aid to providing marketable, decent, functional, safe, sanitary and attractive housing through the moderate rehabilitation of existing dwelling units. In all cases the building or project to be rehabilitated shall be structurally sound. The applicant shall have a structural analysis of the existing building made to determine the adequacy of all structural systems for the proposed rehabilitation. Rural Development differentiates between moderate rehabilitation, maintenance and repair and substantial rehabilitation as follows:
Maintenance and Repair - Work involved in the selective replacement and general maintenance and repair of certain materials, appliances or components of an existing residential building.
Moderate Rehabilitation - All work directly involved in the rearrangement of interior space, the replacement of finish materials or components of the electrical, plumbing, heating or conveyance systems of an existing multi-family residential building. Work and improvements are considered to be more than routine maintenance and repair.
Substantial Rehabilitation - All work directly involved in the rearrangement of interior space that involves alteration of load bearing partitions and columns; the replacement of the electrical, plumbing, heating or coveyance systems: and the addition to and/or major conversion of existing multi-family residential buildings or other building structures.
