LANDLORDS

LANDLORDS BENEFIT FROM HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER (SECTION8) PROGRAMS IN MANY WAYS

  • Timeliness and stability of payments that you receive from EHA. Direct deposit makes it easy.
  • Every other year EHA will conduct a Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection that will alert you to potential problems; however, special inspections may also be conducted on an as needed basis.
  • Access to 1,500 active renters in the greater Evansville area. On any given day, EHA has multiple families actively searching for a new place to call HOME.
  • EHA participates with the GoSection8 online rental listing service that is available to landlords at no cost.

HOW DO I BECOME AN EHA LANDLORD

If you agree to lease your unit to an EHA Housing Choice Voucher program participant, you and the tenant must complete and return the preliminary paperwork to EHA. EHA will review this paperwork and schedule an inspection of the unit. If the unit and the rent are approved, the owner and EHA execute a Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) Contract. Screening of potential tenants is your responsibility as owner/property manager, EHA cannot guarantee or recommend the suitability of any tenant. The HAP contract amount paid by EHA is a percentage of the total rent amount.
