03/09/2021Resume In-Person Housing Quality Standards (HQS) Inspections 04/05/2021

The San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA) plans to resume in-person Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspections beginning Monday, April 5, 2021. Annual inspection notification letters will be issued to tenants and landlords beginning this month with the scheduled inspection date.

In an effort to promote the health and safety of SAHA employees, landlords, and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) participants, SAHA staff will practice additional safety measures while visiting units, such as: wearing a face mask, keeping at least six feet of distance between themselves and others, and they will always knock on the unit door to request entry.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact us by phone at (210) 477-6000 or by email at Inspections@saha.org.
