Lisa asks…

How can one appeal a decision by HUD to raise the monthly rent on a Section 202 building?

Is there an appeal’s process contained somewhere in HUD government documents? I understand that such a case would be heard by an Administrative Law judge and not in civil court. How does one begin the process?

Your Questions About Foreclosures

The Expert answers:

I don’t think the HUD has any real connection with raising the rent since they only provide loans for owners to upgrade their buildings. The onus is on owners to prepay or repay it and that’s when they may choose to defer the cost onto tenants.

If you want to appeal against this then you could look for an attorney to initiate further dialogue or negotiations and court proceedings into the matter which may include a government review on your behalf. You can also correspond with the relevant governing bodies including non governmental agencies.

Where can I apply for low income housing or HUD?

I live in LA county, CA. I am single woman, FT college student w/a disability, and no kids. I need a place to live. My income is spordiac because I have a temporary part time summer job. None of my single friends need or want roommates. I cannot afford the rent here to live on my own. How can I go about finding housing assistance? HUD or a shelter for women? Please help.
I have looked for FT and night jobs. No call backs yet. I get paid monthly from my current job. My check does not stretch past the bills and food. I need a little help to get on my feet.

The Expert answers:

I am in San Bernardino County and volunteer at a homeless shelter here also. Although it is harder to find assistance when you do not have children, it is still possible. Where I am at we are not actually a “shelter”. It is a transitional housing program for homeless or soon to be homeless families and single adults. I know of one other place similar to ours that is also in San Bernardino County.

You mentioned having a disability. If you are an adult permanently disabled you may qualify for SSI.

The best thing to try first is to call 211. This is free of charge from any telephone. You will be connected with United Way and they will be able to provide you with referrals to programs in your local area.

I am also providing a link to the HUD website for rental assistance for people with disabilities. Under “Renting” you can choose to search for apartments in your local area.

I hope this helps you!
GOOD LUCK!!

Jenny asks…

Does my income have to be low to get a HUD home?

I make about 42,000.00 annually. A real estate agent told me I wouldn’t qualify for HUD home.

Do I have to have a lower income to qualify for that? This would be my first home purchase and I have seen some HUD properties that are in the $115k range with little to no repairs needed.

I have read the HUD website but I don’t see where I have to be in poverty.
