An annual inspection determines that the unit continues to meet Housing Quality Standards (HQS) and must be conducted within 12 months of the anniversary date of the last full inspection. The family is notified that it is a family obligation to allow the Housing Department to inspect the unit at reasonable times with reasonable notice (24 CFR 982.51(d)).
Landlords and tenants are responsible for providing access as scheduled. The family and owner are notified of the date and time of the annual inspection appointment by mail. If a unit fails the first inspection, the landlord and/or the tenant will complete all repairs within 30 calendar days as determined by the Housing Inspector (24 hours if the defect is life-threatening or required for livability).
No shows are considered a failed inspection.
