Know the HUD rules for taking applications and waiting list management to ensure compliance.
Even though HUD allows Owner/Agents to create and maintain a system for taking applications and putting applicants on a waiting list, this is still reviewed during a Management and Occupancy Review. Therefore, it is important to know the "musts" according to the 4350.3 Rev 1 HUD Handbook.
In order to be consistent with each applicant and thus avoid discrimination, specific procedures need to be in place to be used every time. Since HUD does have "musts" in this area of applicant taking and wait list management, we need to know what they are to ensure we are compliant.
In this session by our expert speaker Debbie Hixon, you will be provided with some important steps to ensure HUD compliance in applicant taking and waiting list management. Debbie will review some of the strict guidelines for wait list management and go through the HUD handbook concerning waiting to ensure clarity on this subject. Plus, you will get a copy of the portion of Chapter 4 of the Handbook pertaining to waiting lists.
