Saha Lease Termination Agreement

SAHA may refuse permission to move to a family if SAHA does not have sufficient resources for additional support or if SAHA has reasons to refuse or terminate family support. In addition, SAHA may refuse to allow a family to relocate within the first 12 months of joining the program or if a family has left its unit in violation of the lease (except for families who have moved to protect the health or safety of a person who is or has been a victim of domestic violence. Owner`s responsibility The owner is responsible for all HQS violations that are not mentioned above as family liability, even if the injury is caused by the family`s lifestyle (e.g. B vermin). However, if the family`s actions constitute a serious or repeated violation of the rent, the landlord may take legal action to evict the family or provide SAHA with documentation of the serious or repeated breach of rent as evidence that the family has breached its obligations. Notification The family must notify SAHA and the owner before removing the device or terminating the lease. SAHA approval will determine whether the move can be authorized in accordance with the above guidelines. SAHA will notify the family in writing of its destination within 10 business days. As the first PHA, SAHA takes the following steps: Portability A family may move to another unit outside the jurisdiction of SAHA as long as at least one public housing authority (PHA) manages a coupon program in the area. The family may request to reschedule an inspection for a good cause or if it is necessary as suitable accommodation for a person with a disability. The “good cause” is defined as an inevitable conflict that seriously harms the health, safety or well-being of the family. Requests to reschedule an inspection must be submitted orally or in writing and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Before rescheduling the inspection, SAHA may request “good cause” documents. If SAHA cannot determine the cause of an HQS defect, the owner is responsible for correcting the item. These HQS elements, often missed, are just a small example of the HQS elements required. The full list of HQS items is available in Chapter 8 of the Assisted Housing Program Management Plan. When a family leaves the SAHA area to travel to another housing authority, SAHA serves as the first dwelling, while the other housing agency serves as a receptive PHA. Housing Quality Standards (HQS) Inspections To ensure decent, safe and hygienic conditions in all homes in care, SAHA conducts annual inspections on all housing units participating in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. In addition to HQS (Housing Quality Standard) inspections, random quality checks are carried out on at least 10 per cent of participating units to ensure program compliance and confirm that repairs are in compliance with current industry standards.
