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.
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:
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.
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.
