A landlord will submit to the Union County Housing Assistance Payment Program a REQUEST FOR TENANCY APPROVAL and completed Landlord Package. Once the request is received, the program will schedule a unit inspection to assure that the unit meet Housing Quality Standards (HQS). If the unit fails the inspection a letter will be sent to the landlord outlining the required repairs. When all of the repairs are completed the landlord will contact the program to schedule a re-inspection of the unit.
When the unit passes the HQS inspection a HAP Contract will be executed between the tenant and the landlord outlining the terms of the contract. The contract will outline what portion of the rent the tenant is responsible for and what amount will be paid by our program.
The landlord and tenant will sign the contract. It will be returned to the Program with a copy of the Lease.
On an annual basis the unit will be re-inspected to assure that the unit continues to meet HQS. Units will be scheduled for inspections approximately 2 months prior to the expiration of the HAP contract. Both the tenant and the landlord will be notified of the date and time of the inspection. If the unit fails the inspection the landlord with have 30 days to make the required repairs.
Emergency repairs are required to be completed within 24 hrs.
If after 30 days the repairs are not completed an abatement letter will be sent and rents will be abated. (abated means that for the time that the unit is out of HQS rents will not be paid to the landlord. The program cannot pay rent in a unit that does not meet HQS) Once the unit repairs are completed and the unit is re-inspected and passes rents will resume as of that date.
IT IS THE LANDLORDS RESPONSIBILITY TO CALL THE PROGRAM TO SCHEDULE THE REINSPECTION. THE PROGRAM WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY REINSPECT WITHOUT NOTIFICATION FROM THE LANDLORD THAT THE WORK IS COMPLETE.
