A. If the tenant becomes ineligible for assistance: If the tenant becomes ineligible, Aberdeen Housing Authority will cancel its contract with you. However, you may arrange with the family to continue to lease without Housing Voucher assistance.
B. If the family decides not to renew the lease: If the family decides to move from the unit, you may select another family participating in the Housing Voucher program. If you decide to continue with the program, contact Aberdeen Housing Authority and ask them to refer prospective tenants to you.
C. If the owner wants to terminate the lease: The owner may terminate the lease unilaterally only if the tenant violates the lease or for other good cause. The owner and the tenant can mutually decide to terminate the lease at any time.
D. If the owner sells the property: The owner must contact Aberdeen Housing Authority prior to the sale of the property. The contract and lease terminate upon sale of the property. However, Aberdeen Housing Authority and the new owner may transfer the Housing Voucher Contract to provide uninterrupted rental assistance payments.
E. If the tenant vacated the unit in violation of the lease: You may retain the Housing Voucher payment for the month in which the tenant moved. You may also retain the security deposit for the amount of unpaid rent and damages caused by the tenant. To fill the vacancy, contact Aberdeen Housing Authority and ask them to refer prospective tenants to you.
F. Eviction procedures: If you decide to begin eviction proceedings against a tenant, you must follow standard procedures required by state and local law. You must give written notice to the family stating the grounds of the proposed eviction. You must also provide a copy of the written notice to Aberdeen Housing Authority.
