12/20/2023HQS Final Fail Abatement Period

Effective February 1, 2024, the allowable abatement period for Landlord caused Housing Quality Standards (HQS) final failures has been updated from 30 to 60 days.

Landlords will continue to have the option to pay a reinspection fee after a final fail rating.

For questions about this change, please email landlords@homesa.org or call 210-477-6000.

12/20/2023Recertification Packet Update

Previously, the Recertification Packet shared with residents contained inaccurate information regarding the need for a Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA) from residents planning to remain in their units. The Recertification Packet has been updated to remove this language from the “Things I Need To Send With My Recertification Packet.”

RTAs are only necessary when a resident plans to move and has found a new unit. Residents who will remain in their current unit are not required to resubmit an RTA.

For questions, please email landlords@homesa.org or call 210-477-6000.

11/07/2023Housing Assistance Payments

As of November 2023, Opportunity Home will continue making Housing Assistance Payments for a two-month grace period while staff process Resident recertifications. Please note that in the event of a Resident's termination from the program, Opportunity Home will recoup these payments made on their behalf.

In an effort to provide better service, our staff continues to work on decreasing processing time for Resident accounts. For questions regarding this update, please email the Landlord Liaison at landlords@homesa.org.
