DBHA is in the process of updating our functionality in order to serve our Landlords. You will see upcoming changes to our Landlord Portal in 2019-2020.
Becoming a HCV Landlord
- Landlords are critical PARTNERS with The Housing Authority of the City of Daytona Beach (HACDB), in providing safe, decent, and sanitary housing to Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Tenants.
- HCV residents sign the same lease Landlords use for unassisted tenants along with the addition of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Lease addendum.
- HACDB completes Housing Assistant payments in a timely manner.
- To remain on the HCV program the tenant must make timely payments of any tenant portion due to the Landlord and be in good standing with their tenant obligations to the program.
- HACDB will assist with lease enforcement.
- HACDB completes annual inspections on its HCV portfolio to verify tenants are living in safe, sanitary housing. The authority is moving towards, bi-annual inspections for landlords that meet certain inspection criteria in the future. The agency is also looking at self-certification of repairs in the future to expedite the inspection process.
- Landlords can expect Fair Market Rent for their unit(s) and the authority complements a market rent reasonable study to confirm contract amounts.
Changes in Ownership
Changes in ownership will not require execution of a new contract or lease until the next recertification of the current tenant. DBHA will process changes of ownership only upon the written request of the new owner and only if accompanied by a copy of the escrow statement or other document showing the transfer of title, recorded deed and the owner identification number or social security number of the new owners.
If the new owner does not want the assignment of the contract, DBHA will terminate the HAP contract. The new owner may offer the family a new assisted lease. The family may elect to enter into the new lease or move to another unit.
