Detroit Housing Commission HQS Inspection Checklist for Section 08 Housing Mobile App

"Go digital with your Detroit rental assistance inspections using an app that replaces paperwork with your smartphone or tablet.
Topic checklists required in your subsidized housing voucher program inspection include: checking affordable housing rental units against the quality standard, rental unit size, the exterior of the building, rental property plumbing and heating systems, lead-based paint, family rent amount, landlord-tenant law compliance, the exits and hallways, safe and sanitary housing, rental assistance property energy systems, water heaters and more. Record if the unit passes or fails (or not sure). If repairs are needed to the Detroit low-income rental housing property, mark them on the form in the comments section.
These rental housing regulations, provided by Housing and Urban Development program, the federal agency in charge of Detroit's Section 8 public housing authority, is identical to official paperwork, allowing you to complete the inspection right on your smartphone or tablet.
Complete your housing authority initial, annual or move-out inspections for a low-income housing rental unit or rental property anywhere you are. Then, save, share and send your inspection reports to the housing choice voucher program office."
