    Q: A tenant calls saying his/her papework states they can afford a unit submitted, but the inspector denied it. Why?

    A: Here are a few of the reasons that may apply:

    • A tenant's understanding of their own paperwork – This can be a little confusing, but many tenants forget to use the correct utility allowance to get the appropriate contract rent amount, or they don’t figure it in at all. This is common, but once you add the utility allowance and contract rent the cost of the unit may be too high for the family. You must add the asking rent plus the appropriate utility allowance to get the “Gross Rent.” This is what the inspection department will use when conducting their Rent Reasonableness. We are always her to help if there are questions, so feel free to call us. 
    • Rent is too high - Another reason the submitted paperwork might be denied is because the requested rent, plus utilities,  is too high based on what is considered “Rent Reasonable” for the area. This is mandated by HUD and it used  to make sure the rents being charged are fair. We use the www.GoSection8.com  website to conduct our Rent Reasonableness surveys for every new move-in or if there is a change in the responsibility of any utility after the first year.
