Q: My tenant is not paying rent/damaging property – what can I do? A: You should enforce your lease the same way you would with a market rate tenant. It is a good idea to document any issues with tenants through written notices sent to the tenant and a copy sent to the HACD. If the tenant’s violations are serious or repeated, you may want to consider evicting the tenant.
Q: How do I complete the inspection self certification? A: When there are 10 or less non-emergency fail items at an annual inspection, a self-certification form will be included on the inspection report sent to the landlord. After the repairs are made, the tenant and landlord must both sign the form and fax it to (217)444-3172 within 30 days of the inspection.
If the self-certification form is not received within 30 days, the Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) will be abated and the unit will have a fail status.
Q: I just bought the property, and there are Section 8 tenants living in the building. How do I get paid? A: Contact the HACD for a change of ownership packet. You will need to submit the completed forms and provide proof that you are the new owner or manager of the property, such as a deed or title insurance or a current management agreement.
