I’ve Found a Unit. Now What?
Once you have found a unit, your landlord may require you to complete an application. Please be prepared to provide an application fee and complete the application if you are seriously interested in renting the unit. When your application is approved, your landlord will need to complete a Request for Tenancy Approval Packet, also known as an RTA. Once the landlord has completed the RTA, they should submit the packet and the required documentation to our rental assistance department for processing. RTA processing can take up to 15 business days from the day that it is received and confirmed complete. After the RTA is approved, an initial move-in inspection is scheduled. Any unit that is leased must meet HUD’s Housing Quality Standards. The unit must pass inspection before you are given approval to move-in. You will receive a program approval notice after your unit has passed inspection which grants you approval to move into your new unit.
