Management may conduct a unit inspection for any of the following reasons:
- Housekeeping Unit Condition
- Suspected lease violation
- Preventive maintenance
- Routine maintenance
- There is reasonable cause to believe an emergency exists
- Required HQS inspection – (scheduled every two years and as required for all voucher recipients).
- UPCS inspections will be performed annually to ensure the unit is maintained in decent, safe, and sanitary conditions in compliance with state housing agency requirements if applicable.
- Inspections by governmental agencies or ownership/syndication partners to include state monitoring agencies, financial institutions, and syndicators.
Housekeeping inspections will be conducted on an annual basis. If the unit inspection results in discovery that the apartment is not maintained in a decent, safe and sanitary manner, the resident will be issued a lease violation. A re-inspection will be conducted within 30 days to confirm that the resident has complied with the requirement to abate the problem. Failure to abate the problem or allow for a re-inspection is considered a violation of the lease and may result in termination of tenancy.
Management will provide notification in writing at least 48 hours in advance of any inspection. Residents are not required to be present for unit inspections. If it is determined by management that needed repairs went unreported by the resident and/or were caused by the resident’s household and/or guests, the resident will be financially responsible for such repairs and lease violations may be issued.
