We inspect your unit when you first lease it to a Section 8 HCVP tenant and every 24 months thereafter, for most units. We aren’t looking for code compliance, but, rather, for possible health or safety hazards like, a smoke alarm with a dead battery, or an outlet without a switch plate – what the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) calls Housing Quality Standards (HQS). If everything checks out, the unit passes. If not, we’ll come back to reinspect.
Our biennial (or annual) inspection can help you preserve your investment by identifying problems before they become costlier to correct or lead to disputes with the tenant. Our discovery of energy wasters like loose seals in the refrigerator can lower your monthly expense when corrected.
