roof over hang


I bought a foreclosure, the rear of the home has a 36" roof over hang, which is begining to sag. What is the guidelines on over hang distances from the supporting wall? If i want to leave the 36" over hang, is a support post required?

To have a 36" eave looks funny, but if i can keep it from sagging i will keep it as it is.

Are these trusses or rafters? Also, is it a top chord overhang or bottom chord?
