Q: How long does the application process take?
A: Depending on the response time from your employer and prior landlord, it is ESTIMATED the process can take anywhere between one day and a week. Your diligence can help speed the process as well! Submitting an ID copy and two pay periods of paycheck stubs with your application can help speed the process.
Q: Can I process the application and pay the fee online?
A: It is possible. On your computer, you can download the application, fill it out, and email the documents back to us. Look for the "download" options on the Home Page. If printing is an option, but not scanning, take a really good picture and email them to us. Using your phone, you can pay the required application fee with "Cashapp". Pay to $PLPPCash. Once we see the payment, we will review the application. If $Cashapp is not an option for you, we suggest paying during business hours with cash or a money order. We do not accept personal checks. You can ask about using a credit card (3.5% fees apply).
Section 8 Questions
Q: I have my voucher, what is the next step?
A: Once you have found a house that is appropriate for your voucher, you need to submit an application. We cannot determine if your voucher will cover our asking rent. You should discuss that with the Section 8/HUD office. Keep in mind, most voucher amounts include the funds for the landlord to pay the utilities. In "most" cases, we do not pay ANY utilities.
Q: Once my application is approved, what do I do?
A: Once you are accepted for a home, you need to bring your Sec8/HUD RTA to our office so we can complete our portion. Then, you are responsible for taking the RTA to the Section 8 office. The Section 8 office will then inspect the home. Once the house has passed inspection, you need to pay your security deposit in full and sign the lease.
