All city, state and county codes must be followed.For a general checklist of requirements for inspection, please review the HQS inspection form or contact our inspection department.Some deficiencies present immediate danger or threat to the health and/or safety of the family.These items require correction within 24 hours.
The HAP may be abated if these items are not repaired within the specified time period.Additionally, payments will not be made during the period of time a unit does not meet HQS for items of a serious nature.23LEAD-BASED PAINT REQUIREMENTSUnits built prior to 1978 may contain lead-based paint.Lead paint can be found on any painted surface inside or outside in woodwork, walls, floors and stairs.
Children under the age of 6, pregnant women and people exposed to lead during work or hobbies are at risk.
When renting a Landlord must disclose to the renter any knowledge of lead paint in the unit.
The pamphlet, Lead Paint: Protect Your Familymust be given to the families.The OHA Inspector will look for deteriorated, chipping and peeling paint.
The Landlord will be required to investigate further and provide a statement that the unit is lead free.24ANNUAL RECERTIFICATION PROCESSThe circumstances of every HCV assisted family must be reviewed at least annually.
This process begins 90-120 days prior to the anniversary date of the move-in.
This process is in accordance with the terms and conditions of the HAP contract.The Landlord may decide to renew the lease at this time.
The annual unit inspection is conducted during this process.Once the process is complete,
a Payment Adjustment Notice is mailed to the Landlord and the Family to advise of the familys rent portion and the OHA HAP amount and the effective date.25ANNUAL RENT INCREASESDuring the annual recertification process, the Landlord may request an increase in the contract rent amount.
This request must be submitted in writingat least 60 days prior to the effective date of the change.
A lease with the new rent amount included does not satisfy the requirement of a written request.This request must be in the form of a letter or OHA Rent Increase Request form.The same factors used to determine and negotiate initial rent amounts will be used in determining if the requested rent increase amount will be approved or denied.
The final determination regarding the requested rent increase amount will be subject to rent reasonableness and funding received from HUD.

Side payments include, but are not limited to, rent payments collected from HCV participants in addition to the agreed upon contract rent amount, fees for appliances or routine maintenance services or additional charges for utilitiesthat are included in the rent or that the Landlord has agreed to pay.
Additionally, requiring participants to perform services in lieu of payments (i.e, perform their own maintenance) is not permitted.If it is discovered or suspected that a Landlord is collecting any form of side payment the matter will be reported to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for investigation and possible prosecution under Federal law pursuant to HUD regulations.MOVE-OUTS
