WILL I NEED TO PRODUCE ANY DOCUMENTATION?
· Yes, the HA representative will request whatever documentation is needed (e.g., birth certificates, tax returns) to verify the information given on your application. The PHA will also rely on direct verification from your employer, etc. You will be asked to sign a form to authorize release of pertinent information to the PHA.
WHEN WILL I BE NOTIFIED?
· An HA has to provide written notification. If the HA determines that you are eligible, your name will be put on a waiting list, unless the HA is able to assist you immediately. Once your name is reached on the waiting list, the HA will contact you. If it is determined that you are ineligible, the HA must say why and, if you wish, you can request an informal hearing.
WILL I HAVE TO SIGN A LEASE?
· If you are offered a house or apartment and accept it, you will have to sign a lease with the HA. You will have to give the HA a security deposit, and/or pet deposit. You and the HA representative should go over the lease together. This will give you a better understanding of your responsibilities as a tenant and the HA's responsibilities as a landlord.
