Last Updated: April 18, 2019

Property managers who lease to people under Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Housing Choice Voucher programs have additional needs above and beyond those typical of most rental properties. In addition to the normal tenant and lease administration features, managers in the affordable housing sector must manage tenant compliance with HUD requirements.

Common Features of Affordable and Public Housing Software

Funding programs Including Section 8 and Section 236, there are several affordable housing options. So, it’s a good idea to select a program that has the specific program(s) you need. Some programs offer support for layered funding, allowing the user to manage multiple programs simultaneously.
EIV integration Effectively managing the different funding programs means making it easy for users to establish compliance with the current HUD, TRACS, Rural Development and other regulatory standards. Integration with the Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) System and the PIH Information Management System allows the housing agencies to submit information automatically to HUD, drastically reducing the time spent on managing paperwork and bureaucracy.
Audit trail With government reimbursements on the line, it’s extra critical to maintain a trail of voucher and certification reporting to ensure that no valuable information is lost.

Benefits of Affordable and Public Housing Software

Here are some of the commonly known benefits of using this software:

Quick and easy tenant and lease tracking: Providers of affordable and public housing deal with a number of tenants and have to manage all their documentation, such as IDs, rent agreements, contracts and other lease documents, as well. An affordable and public housing solution allows property owners to store tenant-related details and lease documentation in a central location, whether it is on-premise or in the cloud. Some solutions also offer email and text messaging features to communicate with tenants, owners and vendors using the software. It also sends automated reminders so that owners stay updated if their leases are about to expire.

Set building maintenance reminders: Property owners are required to undertake maintenance in between tenant move-outs. They also need to perform seasonal maintenance jobs, such as fixture repairs and cleaning, as part of the property upkeep. This becomes a huge challenge for an owner or property manager who has a large number of housing units to track and maintain.

Housing management software allows users to record their maintenance tasks in a single location. It also helps manage the work orders of the maintenance staff. Users can view all the properties that require maintenance and allocate resources as per requirement. The software also sends automated reminders if the maintenance tasks haven’t been completed by the due date.

Ensure accurate property accounting: Businesses need accurate accounting reports to make decisions and measure their performance. These reports include general ledger, accounts payable, accounts receivable, sales tax and employee payroll. Owners who manage multiple properties often find it challenging to maintain all the rent receipts, maintenance costs, asset costs and employee payroll that are needed to prepare accurate reports.

Housing management software allows businesses
