In early 2015, the RMF Board of Directors committed to a significant investment geared toward assessing and preserving our 100+ chapter house properties via the following program objectives:
to identify our exposures across the full program
to provide educational resources to assist our many house corporation advisors do their jobs more effectively and efficiently, and
to fund key life safety improvements and upgrades along with those major deficiencies creating increased exposures for the local insured and RMF
The Property Conservation Inspection program completed 2 years of enhanced house inspections in December, 2016! This has established a detailed baseline condition of each property with an average of 159 minor to more significant deficiencies per house. This has provided House Corps with meaningful information to prioritize and make repairs as funds are available. With 38% of House Corps reporting, an average of $56,500 has been spent so far in repairs with a significant 42% invested in key areas of: Life-Safety, Electrical, Security and Stormwater Protection.
