Landlords in the Housing Choice Voucher program, commonly called Section 8, provide families with a healthy, safe, affordable place to live. The dwelling unit must pass Housing Quality Standards and be maintained up to those standards as long as the owner receives housing assistance payments. In addition, the landlord is expected to provide the services agreed to as part of the lease signed with the tenant and the contract signed with OHFA.
Prepare for your next inspection by downloading and printing OHFA's Inspection Summary Checklist.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) offers guidance for Housing Choice Voucher landlords.
