Why must a unit be inspected?
There are 3 primary reasons a unit must be inspected:
- HUD requires that any unit being considered for or currently in the Section 8 program must meet HQS in order for the owner to receive rental assistance payments.
- To ensure that there are no health or safety issues that will adversely affect the participant.
- To assist property owners in identifying issues that poses a risk to their tenants or require routine maintenance that if left unaddressed could results in substantial repair costs or serious injury.
