When a family has been determined eligible for assistance, they will receive a Voucher (Form HUD-52646). Then they begin their search for a suitable unit. Landlords may list their properties with the HCV program by going to GoSection8.
Once Step 3 has been completed and the unit is determined affordable and meets Rent Reasonableness requirements, owner/landlord will receive a telephone call notifying them of the inspection date and time. The landlord must be present at the time of inspection.
If the unit does not meet HQS requirements, owner/landlord will receive a list of repairs and a certain amount of time to make the repairs before re-inspection.
If the unit passes inspection, the Section 8 office will enter into a Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Contract with the owner/landlord and the family will enter into a lease with the owner/landlord. After the contract and lease have been executed, the family may move into the unit.
The Fiscal Services Division of the Section 8 HCV Office will begin process payments to the owner/landlord for the Section 8 portion of the rent. The Section 8 Office will prorate the first month's contract rent payment according to the effective date of HAP contract and make all other payments in a timely manner.
If you would like information on becoming a HCV landlord or if you have general questions, please review the information for Landlords fact sheet.
