Yes. There will be two types of inspection that will be needed. The first inspection is a Housing Quality Standards (HQS) Inspection, performed free of cost, by the Garland Housing Agency (GHA). The HQS inspection is used to determine if the current condition of the unit is decent, safe and sanitary. The GHA may, but is not required, to conduct annual housing quality standard inspections.
The second type of inspection is by an independent professional home inspector that you will hire. The purpose of this inspection is to identify home defects and assess the adequacy and life span of major systems, appliances and other structural components.
