UPCS – Uniform Physical Condition Standards

The Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS) is an inspection protocol developed by HUD to evaluate if its residents live in decent, safe and sanitary housing. In 1998, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) established the Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) to provide accurate information assessing the condition of properties owned, insured or subsidized by HUD. Our service is affordable and usually saves the property money longer term. The UPCS protocol has become a standard by which to measure the physical condition of multi-family and other subsidized properties and continues to be adopted by federal, state and local government.
