"Landlord's Obligations: The role of the landlord in the voucher program is to provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing to a tenant at a reasonable rent. The dwelling unit must pass the program's housing quality standards and be maintained up to those standards as long as the owner receives housing assistance payments. In addition, the landlord is expected to provide the services agreed to as part of the lease signed with the tenant and the contract signed with the PHA."
Unlike my colleagues, I am not an advocate of placing tenants into my rental unit if they cannot personally afford my rental rates. I am by no means a believer in big brother dictating my market rates, my repair needs or requiring me to sign a contract to dictate what I am required to do with my property. I prefer quality screening to provide me with viable tenants that fit my requirements for credit, income, and criminal background checks.
Just a little about my background so you know where I'm coming from....I'm an investor that has multiple properties and tenants in the San Antonio area. I go above and beyond to provide clean and updated rental units and have been in the game for awhile. Whatever you decide, Good Luck.... more
