An Overview Of Housing Quality Standards Inspections

Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspections ensure that Housing Choice Voucher rental units are safe and livable. SCCHA suggests that the landlord and tenant walk through the home and note any broken or damaged items so that they can be fixed before the Housing Choice Voucher inspection. If the unit does not pass, all failed items must be repaired, and a new inspection may be necessary to verify repairs have been completed before the tenant moves in.
