Some applicants received full reimbursement, but most are required to pay a small portion of the rents on top of the governmenet assistance. If the rents were $750, the government might pay $725 and the tenant would be required to pay the balance of $25.00 each month.
There are many other factors to consider. Besides the government check arriving every month on time, there are conditions placed on the owner/ property management co. The property has to meet the basic standards of habitability, rents are hard to raise later especially if there are no funds for the increase. Also expect in many cases, the small portion the tenant is supposed to pay is sometimes the hardest monies to collect.
Then there is the possibility of damages from the tenant's tenancy. Collecting on damages can be a challenge at the very least and in some cases, the property must remain vacant until the government decides if and how much they may pay towards the damages.
Just some things to consider.
