How Do I Become An AHA Landlord?
If you agree to lease your unit to an AHA Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program participant, you and the tenant must complete and return the Request for Tenancy Approval (RFTA) packet to AHA. The packet is provided to the tenant by AHA. AHA will review this paperwork and schedule an inspection of the unit. If the unit and the rent are approved, the owner and AHA execute a Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) Contract. Screening of potential tenants is your responsibility as owner/property manager, AHA cannot guarantee or recommend the suitability of any tenant. The HAP contract amount paid by AHA is a percentage of the total rent amount. For more information read the landlord handbook found below.
Advertising and locating property has never been easier! AHA has partnered with AffordableHousing.com to provide an enhanced program to list rental properties online. Listings are available to potential Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) tenants seeking apartment units, duplexes, single-family homes or townhomes in the private market. If you have any questions regarding registering, creating or viewing property listings, please contact GoSection8.com at 866.466.7328 or Landlords add your rental property.
Landlord Access Portal
Another way that AHA is making it easier for landlords is by giving you access to information online. Over the next few months, AHA will be rolling out our new Landlord Access Portal. This online service will allow landlords to view information, such as their HAP payment history and results from HQS inspections. One of AHA’s goals is to make the retrieval and submission of information as easy as possible via the internet.
