What are preventative maintenance visits?

Preventative maintenance visits are scheduled annually to review any maintenance needs in
the unit. These are preemptive visits, designed to assist tenants in passing the annual
inspection and to ensure the ongoing quality of the housing. These visits can be rescheduled if the date/time does not work for you.

Generally, if the amount of work needed to be done in the unit is minimal, this will be done the same day. If there is a significant amount of work to be done, then maintenance may need additional visits for them or a vendor. All Section 8 funded units and all AHA-owned units are required to pass HQS in order to maintain their subsidy. These inspections are done at move in and least every two years.
