1 U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Public and Indian Housing A Good Place to Live!
2 Introduction Having a good place to live is important. Through your Public Housing Agency (or PHA) the Section 8 Certificate Program and the Housing Voucher Program help you to rent a good place. You are free to choose any house or apartment you like, as long as it meets certain requirements for quality. Under the Section 8 Certificate Program, the housing cannot cost more than the Fair Market Rent. However, under the Housing Voucher Program, a family may choose to rent an expensive house or apartment and pay the extra amount. Your PHA will give you other information about both programs and the way your part of the rent is determined. Housing Quality Standards Housing quality standards help to insure that your home will be safe, healthy, and comfortable. In the Section 8 Certificate Program and the Housing Voucher Program there are two kinds of housing quality standards. Things that a home must have in order approved by the PHA, and Additional things that you should think about for the special needs of your own family. These are items that you can decide. The Section 8 Certificate Program and Housing Voucher Program The Section 8 Certificate Program and Housing Voucher Program allow you to choose a house or apartment that you like. It may be where you are living now or somewhere else. The must have standards are very basic items that every apartment must have. But a home that has all of the must have standards may still not have everything you need or would like. With the help of Section 8 Certificate Program or Housing Voucher Program, you should be able to afford a good home, so you should think about what you would like your home to have. You may want a big kitchen or a lot of windows or a first floor apartment. Worn wallpaper or paint may bother you. Think of these things as you are looking for a home. Please take the time to read A Good Place to Live. If you would like to stay in your present home, use this booklet to see if your home meets the housing quality standards. If you want to move, use it each time you go to look for a new house or apartment, and good luck in finding your good place to live. Read each section carefully. After you find a place to live, you can start the Request for Lease Approval process. You may find a place you like that has some problems with it. Check with your PHA about what to do, since it may be possible to correct the problems. The Requirements Every house or apartment must have at least a living room, kitchen, and bathroom.

21 Now that you have finished this booklet, you know that for a house or apartment to be a good place to live, it must meet two kinds of housing quality standards: Things it must have in order to be approved for the Section 8 Rental Certificate Program and the Rental Voucher Program. Additional things that you should think about for the special needs of your family. You know that these standards apply in six areas of a house or apartment. 1. Living Room 2. Kitchen 3. Bathroom 4. Other Rooms 5. Building Exterior, Plumbing and Heating 6. Health and Safety You know that when a house or apartment meets the housing quality standards, it will be safe, healthy, and comfortable home for your family. It will be a good place to live. After you find a good place to live, you can begin the Request for Lease Approval process. When both you and the owner have signed the Request for Lease Approval and the PHA has received it, an official inspection will take place. The PHA will inform both you and the owner of the inspection results. If the house or apartment passed, a lease can be signed. There may still be some items that you or the PHA would like improved. If so, you and your PHA may be able to bargain for the improvements when you sign the lease. If the owner is not willing to do the work, perhaps you can get him or her to pay for the materials and do if yourself. It the house or apartment fails, you and/or your PHA may try to convince the owner to make the repairs so it will pass. The likelihood of the owner making the repairs may depend on how serious or costly they are. If it fails, all repairs must be made, and the house or apartment must be re-inspected before any lease is signed. If the owner cannot or will not repair the house or apartment, even if the repairs are minor, you must look for another home. Make sure you understand why the house or apartment failed, so that you will be more successful in your next search.
22 Responsibilities of the Public Housing Authority: Ensure that all units in the Section 8 Certificate Program and the Housing Voucher Program meet the housing quality standards. Inspect unit in response to Request for Lease Approval. Inform potential tenant and owner of results and necessary actions. Encourage tenants and owners to maintain units up to standards. Make inspection in response to tenant or owner complaint or request. Inform the tenant and owner of the results, necessary actions, and time period for compliance. Make annual inspection of the unit to ensure that it still meets the housing quality standards. Inform the tenant and owner of the results, necessary actions, and time period for compliance. Responsibilities of the tenant: Live up to the terms of your lease. Do your part to keep the unit safe and sanitary. Cooperate with the owner by informing him or her of any necessary repairs. Cooperate with the PHA for initial, annual, and complaint inspections. Responsibilities of the owner: Comply with the terms of the lease. Generally maintain the unit and keep it up to the housing quality standards outlined in this booklet. Cooperate with the tenant by responding promptly to requests for needed repairs. Cooperate with the PHA on initial, annual, and complaint inspections, including making necessary repairs.
