Landlord News and Seminars
Every month the Housing Authority of the City of Austin holds seminars for landlords new to the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program. The purpose of this seminar is to give potential landlords an overview of the program. The seminar will take landlords through the steps that include: listing your property, determining a rent amount, selecting a tenant, inspection of the unit, and payment by the housing authority
We can also schedule on-site visits/meetings with apartment communities, leasing agencies and realty offices. Contact the landlord outreach specialist for more information at (512) 477-1314 ext. 1301 or e-mail email@example.com.
ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES FOR LANDLORDS: MOVING ORIENTATIONS
Regular monthly moving orientations are for HCV families who decide to move under the Housing Choice Voucher Program. The assisted head of household must attend a moving orientation to receive the voucher, rent estimates, and paperwork necessary for the moving process. All participants attending these orientations will have approximately two months to find a unit in the private sector. Property owners, apartment staff and landlords are encouraged to attend to advertise vacancies and to talk to prospective tenants. It is recommended to bring flyers and business cards to distribute.
The dates for upcoming monthly moving orientations are:
• June 28
• July 26
• August 30
• September 27
• October 25
There will be four orientation times on each of these dates: 9:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. If you need further information about these orientations please contact Gisela Silva at 512-477-1314 Ext. 1301, firstname.lastname@example.org.
