When you have found a unit you would like to rent, the following is required:
Both you and the landlord are now ready to complete the Request for Tenancy Approval. This form must be completed and signed by you and the landlord.
Once the form is complete, please mail, fax or deliver to
Caribou Housing Agency
If the Request for Tenancy Approval is complete and meets all requirements, the Housing Agency will schedule a Housing Quality Standards Inspection on the unit. You will be notified as quickly as possible as to the results of the inspection. If the unit passes inspection, you and your landlord will sign a lease.
If there are problems with the Request for Tenancy Approval, if the unit does not pass inspection, or if the rent charged by the landlord is not determined to be reasonable, you will need to find another unit. You will be notified as quickly as possible whenever there are problems with your request.
You may pay your share of the first month’s rent as soon as you receive official confirmation that:
If the landlord allows you to move in before all three of the above have been accomplished, please be aware that if the landlord does not sign the HAP contract, you could be responsible for the full amount of the rent.
The Housing Agency will pay its share of the first month’s rent after execution of the contract with the landlord and on the first of the month thereafter.
