AHA is always looking for new Landlords to work with. Below is some information that may be useful for those considering accepting our vouchers as well as for Landlords we currently work with.
If you have any questions or have information you would like to see posted, please contact Deborah McGinnis by email at email@example.com or phone at (325) 676-6385 ext. 6389.
Housing Quality Standards (HQS) Information
"A Good Place to Live" – This document is provided by HUD to inform tenants what a unit must have to be considered eligible for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. Everyone who is issued a voucher has a copy of this document.
Do you have available rental units? Are you having trouble locating tenants that can afford your unit? Are you, or someone you know, interested in participating in our program?
You may have the perfect house for one of the hundreds of families we help each year!
Benefits of participation include:
You receive a guaranteed monthly payment on the first of every month via direct deposit.
You retain total control. You can collect a security deposit, use your own lease, and screen tenants according to your own suitability criteria.
You receive free annual inspections to ensure maximum property upkeep.
By participating in the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program, you are helping low-income families obtain housing.
Call or e-mail Deborah McGinnis if you are interested in becoming a NEW HCV Landlord. He can be reached at (325) 676-6385 ext. 6389 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are always happy to answer any questions prospective Landlords may have.
The New Landlord Packet is available upon request. Please contact our receptionist at (325) 676-6385 ext. 6380 to receive a copy.
