HUD (the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) has established guidelines for radon testing in multi-family homes that receive HUD funding. These guidelines require that radon testing be conducted in all units on the lowest level of the building that are suitable for occupancy.
It’s important to verify with your lender or a qualified radon testing professional to determine if testing is required for your particular situation.

HUD-Compliant Radon Testing refers to radon testing that meets the requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These requirements vary depending on the type of mortgage or loan being used to purchase or refinance a property.
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is naturally occurring in the environment. It can seep into homes through cracks and openings in the foundation, and prolonged exposure to high levels of radon can increase the risk of lung cancer. HUD requires radon testing to help ensure that properties financed through its programs are safe for occupants.
Radon testing is typically required once every two years for properties that are financed through HUD programs. However, individual lenders or state and local programs may have their own requirements or guidelines for radon testing.
Typically, the homebuyer is responsible for arranging and paying for radon testing. However, some lenders or state and local programs may offer assistance or require that testing be conducted by a qualified professional.
If a property tests positive for high levels of radon, the seller may be required to take corrective action to reduce the levels before the sale can proceed. This may involve installing a radon mitigation system, sealing cracks and openings in the foundation, or making other modifications to the property.
