Under the regulation of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), all public housing authorities are required to conduct annual Uniform Physical Condition Standard (UPCS) inspections on all housing properties. These inspections ensure that the housing units are decent, safe, and sanitary. HUD also conducts its own annual inspections, in which units in the Housing Authority are selected for inspection at random.
It is your responsibility to make certain entry can be gained to the unit. You may be present for the inspection. There is no specific time that the inspector will come to your unit. Please be advised that we will enter your unit on the scheduled date even if you are not home.
The inspector will be checking for the following (not limited to):
- Cleanliness of the bathroom
- Cleanliness of kitchen and all appliances
- Cleanliness and visible clutter throughout the unit
- Cleanliness of outside areas both front and back
- Functionality of smoke detectors
