Fannie Mae Physical Needs Assessment (PNA)

Fannie Mae and its DUS Lenders require a Physical Needs Assessment which is essentially their version of the Property Condition Report. The Physical Needs Assessment is defined in the Fannie Mae Delegated Underwriting and Servicing guide. The Physical Needs Assessment is required for Fannie Mae financing on many types of residential properties, including apartment communities, assisted living facilities, student housing, and manufactured housing communities. The Physical Needs Assessment is similar to an ASTM E2018 Property Condition Assessment in many respects, though there are distinct differences.
