Owner, Not Housing Board, Responsible for Resident's Eviction
Facts: The Mobile, Ala., Housing Board discovered that a Section 8 resident had failed to report an increase in her household income. It sent the resident a letter notifying her that the housing board had overpaid its portion of the rent for 16 months in the amount of $3,248, which the resident must repay.
The resident agreed that she owed that amount and entered into a payback agreement by which she would make monthly payments over a 12-month period. However, after those 12 months, the resident had a balance due of $1,496.13, and had stopped making additional payments.
