Becoming a Landlord

How To Qualify

The landlord must agree to accept subsidy for their tenant, by entering into a Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract with the Spartanburg Housing.

The dwelling unit must pass the program’s Housing Quality Standards and be maintained up to those standards as long as the owner receives housing assistance payments. The rent requested must be reasonable and the landlord must not charge the tenant any amount other than what Spartanburg Housing has determined to be the tenants’ portion of rent.

Inspection Process
Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program regulations at 24 CFR Part 982 set forth basic housing quality standards (HQS) which all units must meet before assistance can be paid on behalf of a family and at least annually throughout the term of the assisted tenancy. HQS define “standard housing” and establish the minimum criteria for the health and safety of program participants. Current HQS regulations consist of 13 key aspects of housing quality, performance requirements, and acceptability criteria to meet each performance requirement. HQS includes requirements for all housing types, including single and multi-family dwelling units, as well as specific requirements for special housing types such as manufactured homes, congregate housing, single room occupancy, shared housing, and group residences.

Getting Paid
Once Spartanburg Housing approves an eligible family’s housing unit, the family and the landlord sign a lease and, at the same time, the landlord and Spartanburg Housing sign a HAP contract that runs for the same term as the lease. Payments will be generated on the first of the month, following execution of the HAP contract. Payment are direct deposited into the owner's bank account. In addition, the landlord is expected to provide the services agreed to as part of the lease signed with the tenant and the contract signed with Spartanburg Housing.
