 What are the tenant’s responsibilities?

Like any tenant, Section 8 participants have responsibilities to you – which should be spelled out in the lease

 Can I terminate the tenancy of a Housing Choice Voucher program participant?

Yes, you have the same rights with Housing Choice participants that you have with any other tenants. You can evict a tenant who violates the terms of the lease. You must provide a copy of any eviction notice to the Housing Authority the same time you notify the tenant.

 What does a unit have to have in order to pass an inspection?

The unit needs to meet basic Housing Quality Standards for safe and sanitary housing. Doors and windows must open, close and lock. Plumbing and electrical systems must work properly. Heating must be adequate & ventless gas heaters are not permitted. Most well maintained rental units should be able to pass an inspection.
