FHA Inspection Guidelines

Does anyone know the FHA Inspection Guidelines? I just got the home inspection and there were a few problems:




Few shingles missing on corner of house

Flashing installed incorrectly on portion of the house


Electrical Box:


Double tapped on a 20 amp breaker

14 gauge wire on a 20 amp breaker


These were the main problems, I was wondering if the FHA inspector would red-flag these. In the back of my mind I am hoping he does, I would love to have these fixed prior to me purchasing the house.

Re: FHA Inspection Guidelines

Is it a foreclosure or short sale? If not I would have the sellers agree to fix them first...None of that sounds like a deal breaker.
