Will you inspect my unit before I find an EPHA-qualified family to rent it?

No. We do not inspect units until you have a voucher family selected and the preliminary paperwork is turned in (Request for Tenancy Approval). We do a preliminary calculation to be sure the rent amount does not cost the family more than 40% of their income. Inspections are usually scheduled within three to five working days from the date the Request for Tenancy Approval form is submitted to the EPHA office.
