New Temporary Housing Section on HAR.com
HAR.com is in the process of building a website that will allow REALTORS®, individual property owners, landlords and property managers to post properties they are offering for temporary housing due to the immediate need of so many. These properties may include some available for reduced rent or even free, depending on the owner.

  • What is a remediation certificate? Does one need one to resell their flood damaged home? Realtors seem to be promoting this certification thing at a cost of thousands of dollars here in Kingwood and telling folks they will not be able to market their homes without one. The article sent out by HAR addressed this issue somewhat in it’s article on remediation tips recommended by AARP but we need clarification on this certificate thing . I am not aware of any government regulation to this and I don’t see how an industrial hygiene agency has the authority to state condition of homes for safety from mold.
