The Housing Choice Voucher program requires little beyond that which is required by law. Once a year, BHA will inspect the apartment and make sure that it is in compliance with HUD’s Minimum Housing Quality Standards, Chapter II of the State Sanitary Code, and laws regarding lead paint compliance. Please see a checklist of common items reviewed during BHA inspection of apartments.
Similarly, Housing Choice Voucher tenants have all the rights and responsibilities of unassisted tenants, except that they are responsible for only paying a portion of the rent. As with unassisted tenants, irreconcilable differences between the owner and the tenant must be settled by the Housing Court.
