The Johnston County Housing Choice Voucher Program provides monthly rental assistance to landlords on behalf of Housing Choice Voucher for income-eligible families. These rental assistance payments cover a portion or, in some cases, their entire monthly contract rent. The family’s share of the rent is based upon 30% of their monthly adjusted income and other program requirements, including the $50.00 minimum rent requirement. For an initial lease, a family’s rental share of the contract rent cannot exceed 40% of the household monthly adjusted income.
Our program is a plus for owners of rental property, and we would like to help you take advantage of the benefits available.
The lease is a legally binding contract between the landlord and tenant that explains the legal rights and responsibilities of both parties. Once the parties sign the lease, both are bound by the terms of it. This lease must be approved by Johnston County HAPP before it can be signed and executed. The owner’s lease must include the HUD required tenancy addendum, which is provided by HAPP.
The lease, according to HUD, must contain:
The landlord may charge a late fee not to exceed $15.00 or 5% of the rent; and shall be calculated on the tenant’s share or portion of the contract rent only.
