Becoming a Landlord



DH Step By Step Process For Working With Us .png


About Your Lease Agreement:

  • Landlords use their own lease agreement and the same screening criteria that apply to any other applicants and tenants.
  • Tendency Addendum is part of the HAP contract and lease. This form can be found under landlord forms.  
  •   The lease should not be signed and dated until after Dothan Housing's approval. 

Documents Needed: 

Dothan Housing is required by HUD to confirm that housing assistance payments are issued to the legal owner or a legal representative of the owner. To comply with these requirements the Housing Authority will request specific information on page three (3) of the property registration packet prior to approval of a HAP contract on a unit:

Inspection Process: 

The dwelling unit must pass the program's housing quality standards and be maintained up to those standards as long as the owner receives housing assistance payments.

Landlord Incentives:

 DH has launched our Attracting, Recruiting, and Retaining Landlord Campaign. Landlords who meet the required criteria are eligible for  landlord incentives. For more information or requirements for eligibility click here
