Housing Quality Inspections

Apartments leased to participants in KH’s Housing Choice Voucher program must meet HUD’s Housing Quality Standards. KH inspectors must physically inspect all apartments before any voucher assistance can be provided on behalf of a household and on a regular basis after the household moves in. To schedule an initial inspection, the household and landlord  must complete a Request for Tenancy Approval. Any repairs noted by the inspector must be completed before the apartment will pass inspection. KH makes its best effort to inspect and, if required, re-inspect units (if repairs are needed) in a timely fashion. Complete information on KH’s inspection guidelines and Housing Quality Standards can be found in Chapter 14 of KH’s MTW Administrative Plan.
