Sorry guys and gals, i'm a little rusty on FHA's policies. Does anyone know what FHA's policy on a wet basement?  My subject has a walk up [exterior entrance only] basement. It is completely unfinished. The home was built in 1950. I inspected today and it was a rainy day however, there was a small amount of  standing water in this basement. I'm sure all us have seen this at some point. Any input would be appreciated/helpful.   Thanks DSC00160.JPG

It cannot have standing water.  Condition it on a basement inspection with advised remedy applied. 

Same thing with a crawl.

Unfortunately this is not easily remedied..  in a buyer's market they were forcing sellers to put in a b-dry or similar system in crawls and basements that run over 5k.  It's kind of a big deal if someone wants to make it a big deal.

Could be something as simple as a gutter downspout.

Subject to inspection and any repairs deemed necessary.

Maybe the seller just mopped it before you inspected it?

Look at the rust on those support poles and old water marks on those blocks.  This isn't the first time.  There is a serious drainage/moisture issue.  Curable, probably.
