Tenant Obligations

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development offers an overview that outlines what a Housing Choice Voucher tenant’s obligations are to remain eligible for rental assistance.

The Pontiac Housing Commission encourages landlords to be aware of what their tenant’s obligations are under the Housing Choice Voucher program and how they might differ from the lease agreement between the landlord and tenant. Landlords should contact the Housing Commission immediately, in writing and with documentation, if an infraction occurs. Landlords should also be advised to first utilize their own lease agreements with the tenant prior to involving the housing commission.
