If I do have problems with the tenant, does the EPHA take care of the problem for me?

No. We still expect our landlords to be the landlord and take responsibility for enforcing the lease agreement. If the situation warrants eviction, as the landlord you must follow procedures as established by state statute. We do require you to give our office copies of any eviction or termination notices you serve. In some cases, we can assist with problems, especially if it is a violation of our program rules.
