If the landlord does not fix the owner-cited deficiencies within the 30-day time period, and an extension has not been granted; then the assisted unit will be abated – AHA will stop paying Housing Assistance to the landlord. Landlords can be in abatement status for up to 60 days, before termination of Housing Assistance Payment Contract (HAPC) is issued due to non-compliance. AHA will issue a 30 Day Notice of HAPC termination to both landlord and participant.
At the time of HAPC termination, 30 Day notice is issued, and you will be given the notice to move within 30 days. You will need to contact your assigned Housing Specialist to begin the moving process. You can also contact the Alameda Rent Program at 510-747-4346 to see if you are eligible for relocation assistance and you can contact Code Enforcement at 510-747-6818.
