New Landlords

The Chatham County Housing Authority’s (CCHA) Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) programs welcome partnerships with landlords in Chatham County to assist families in need of housing that’s affordable.  CCHA’s HCV Program allows low-income families to rent quality housing in the private market via federal funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Through the HCV Program, CCHA pays a portion of eligible families’ rent each month directly to the landlord. Families can use their vouchers to rent a house or apartment in the private market.

If you wish to rent to an HCV family, and enjoy a number of benefits including lower vacancy rates, tenant stability, and free property inspections, you should inform CCHA of the availability of your property.  Ultimately, it is the HCV family’s decision whether or not to rent your property. Of course, as the landlord, you would screen the HCV family just as you would any other prospective tenant.  The following steps summarize the process to become an HCV landlord:

  • Attend a Landlord Briefing
  • Market your property once HCV participant is selected
  • Complete and submit a Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA)
  • Pass Housing Quality Standards (HQS) Inspection
  • Execute lease and Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract
  • Comply HUD and CCHA’s rules and regulations (enforce lease)
  • If you’re interested in becoming an HCV Landlord contact the HCV Coordinator at (919) 742-1236
