10/08/2021Relocating Tenants for Emergencies

The San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA) would like to remind our partnering landlords and property owners that our voucher-holder families are not permitted to vacate their unit to relocate to a new unit without first notifying SAHA about this change.

If there is an emergency situation that arises in one of your units, or in the event that a unit has become uninhabitable and it requires you to relocate a tenant family that has a voucher through one of the Assisted Housing Programs (AHP), SAHA asks that you please complete the following steps:

(1) Download the Request for Complaint Inspection Form from the SAHA website.

(2) Fill out the form and submit a completed version to inspections@saha.org.

(3) In the Request for Complaint Inspection Form notes, please indicate:

a) The nature of the emergency situation

b) Why the tenant is being relocated

c) The duration of time the family is expected to vacate the unit.

Thank you very much for your continued partnership and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 210.477.6000 or email inspections@saha.org.
