Are prospective residents able to undergo the credit/criminal background check that our market paying applicants must pass?
mcallahan
55:19
What fees are allowable per the HCV program?
Elizabeth Goodrich
57:30
So if we charge currently for parking or other amenities those on the HCV program do not have to pay these but have the same access as the other tenants that do pay?
ForestView
58:44
What is the $750 vacancy payment you mentioned?
rebeccamiller
58:52
If there are exterior issues that can’t be remedied in the winter is there additional time given to remedy when weather permits or does the unit fail? Can you speak to inspections / rent increases after the first year?
Kye
58:56
Are we required to change our approval criteria for subsidy applicants, regarding criminal history and previous rental history?
jbunker
59:47
You mentioned $750 vacancy payment to the landlord, can you explain a little more what the requirements are to qualify and how you get set up to receive?
Justin Garland
01:00:29
How many vouchers are currently available?
traciew
01:00:36
if Landlord receives $750 security deposit incentive- and is required to reimburse the tenant-- who, then, is security deposit rett returned to?-- CMHA or tenant.?
Tallia
01:01:23
Are CMHA residents exempt from renewal increases?
jbunker
01:01:28
Sorry, last question was asked above but not yet answered
DJ Ullom
01:03:11
If a community is currently accepting the voucher and the current market rate is higher than the current approved rate for the community, will CMHA approve a new lease for the current market rate or would we have to lower the rent to the current approved rate?
Kye
01:03:20
Are there any limitations to how me specify which tenants are receiving subsidy in our system?
Shay Fraley
01:03:28
If we typically require residents to move in within a certain amount of time from the time of application do we have to waive this time frame for CMHA residents due to the inspections? It seems that it would cause a greater loss of vacancy rent.
erin p
01:03:53
what happens if rent increase is declined or not raised to meet what we believe our property is worth?
Tallia
01:06:14
If, at move out...there are damages that supersede the security deposit. Is the landlord reimbursed by CMHA?
Heather V
01:06:26
If a tenant is served a three day notice do we need to notify CMHA prior to filing with Franklin County Municipal Court? Also, are we able to maintain residency on a month to month basis once the initial lease expires
Kye
01:07:19
Can we notate who is receiving a subsidy in our system to differentiate them from other tenants for delinquency, renewals, fees, etc since we have to treat their accounts differently
Elizabeth Goodrich
01:07:22
How long does it take to have an inspection completed once requested?
erin p
01:07:40
If failed inspection items occur on annual review, that tenant has caused, could landlord charge tenant for damages or repair supplies?
Kathy Carroll
01:07:51
Can you explain the process for the landlord with a transfer/porting of a voucher holder from 1 county to another?
Tom Vetter
01:09:56
If you are pre-leasing a unit that is still occupied, will CMHA do an inspection on a unit that are still occupied by the previous resident that is planning on vacating the unit?
Kathy Carroll
01:11:26
and would the new landlord be eligible for the incentive program with a transfer/porting voucher holder?
DJ Ullom
01:12:29
For 'market rate' communities, if the voucher is less than what the asking rate is, would the CMHA recipient be given the option to pay the difference? Or - would the rent have to be at or below what the voucher is for? Also, is the amount of the voucher included towards the overall monthly income of the participant when qualifying the prospect?
Jamie
01:13:55
Do we have to accept cmha’s approved rent upon renewal or can the landlord refuse to accept the amount, and therefore the tenant would have to move?
erin p
01:13:57
after initial lease term ends, we can or can not ask tenants to sign another year lease?
Kye
01:14:41
Is there a way to get the rent for our property assessed prior to receiving a subsidy application or do we have to wait for an applicant before we are provide this information?
Heather V
01:15:50
If there are revisions to the lease during it's term (ex adding an approved occupant/pet/appliance) would we have to go thru the entire process with CMHA again with regards to paperwork submission/inspections
Kye
01:18:30
Yes
Dede Jones
01:19:08
If the rent reasonable test is higher than the market rate is valued at can we increase it to the price we were approved for?
erin p
01:21:39
what if the tenant says they will "pay the difference out of pocket"
Kathy Carroll
01:21:57
If the max rent for a 1 bedroom per HUD rent limits is $951 why would CMHA's max rent only be $910?
Tallia
01:22:46
What if a charge is added mid lease? Internet, parking, etc.
jbunker
01:22:48
Maybe I missed it but what is the "$750 vacancy payment"?
erin p
01:23:16
may we have the slides seen today?
Jordan
01:23:24
If the tenant doesn't meet screening criteria for credit can they get a cosigner?
Kathy Carroll
01:23:29
I will send the rent limit to you Mr. Davis where we received the info
Lisa K
01:25:03
Our property includes all appliances including washers and dryers. Would that increase the amount CMHA would pay since we include washers and dryers?
Heather V
01:25:12
If we agree to a renewal lease to a resident, our company offers incentives that can sometimes lower rent. Will that impact the CMHA voucher approval or can we not offer that kind of incentive to voucher recipients?
erin p
01:29:45
Thank you all so much. Very informative.
