HUD Inspection Form - Section 8 - Tennessee Mobile App
In order to rent to a Section 8 tenant in Tennessee your house or apartment must be inspected to make sure it meets the housing standards of the Section 8 program.
How does it work?
The inspector will examine the exterior of the building, the plumbing and heating systems, the exits and hallways, and each room to make sure the unit is safe, clean and in good condition. The unit must be vacant at the time of the first inspection, and all utilities must be turned on. The inspector must have access to the unit itself, the basement, and all common areas. Use this checklist form provided by HUD, the federal agency in charge of the Section 8 program, to complete the inspection right on your smartphone or tablet. For each line item the inspector marks if the unit passes or fails (or not sure). If repairs are needed to your Tennessee property, the inspector marks this on the form in the comments section.
