When Should I Handout The VAWA Forms?

HUD has clarified that owners MUST begin now to give current and newly-admitted households a copy of the new notice of occupancy rights and the certification form. This MUST be done either during the annual recertification or lease renewal process, or, if there will be no recertification or lease renewal for a household during the […]

To File Special Claims or not

I wish there was a Special Claim for “Not enough time in the day” but I guess I will have to wait for that one. Some affordable housing properties submit claims and others may not think it’s worth their staff’s time. Others file them when necessary. Would I file a Regular Vacancy claim for a […]

Section 8 Child Support Deduction and Verification

I have never been a single parent so I can only speculate through the experience of my friends that it is not an easy task. Collecting Child Support can also be a difficult process because you are somewhat powerless as to whether you are going to be able to collect those funds from the working […]

TRACS 202D and Repayment Agreements

Although I have previously written an article on this subject before it wasn’t until now that there was some more clarity from TRACS 202D and the impending TRACS release in September.

Our TRACS industry meeting began on a sad note: Willie Spearman, Gail Williamson and Deb Lear have announced their retirement from HUD. These three individuals have made large contributions to the multifamily housing industry. They will be sorely missed!

CA’s obligation to reconcile the Voucher with the property

In the past year or so I have had two clients who after several months of having their vouchers revised by their CA, were not given any reason for the revision and when they inquired as to why their voucher was revised they were simply told to “figure it out on their own”. I got […]

Our HUD Multifamily Industry Resources

During an average day of property management you may find yourself confronted with an issue and asking yourself “what am I supposed to do now?”. We may or may not realize during the heat of the moment that there are resources that are afforded to us within our industry to answer that very question.

Choosing the right affordable housing software vendor

Selecting the right affordable housing software vendor is a task which, in my opinion, is like shopping for a new car. How much do you have to spend? Do you want just a car? Do you want an SUV? Or do you need a truck? Once you pick the type of vehicle you want, then […]

Removal of SSN from tenant files

Although this is not yet a requirement, it is obvious that there is a push in the affordable housing industry to reduce the amount of times the SSN is disclosed in the tenant file to minimize the risk of identity fraud. We were told during a recent TRACS Industry meeting that the SSN will not […]
