Using the HUD Model Lease; Dealing with Marijuana Use on Site
In this month’s feature, we discussed how to choose the correct HUD model lease to use at your site. Appendix 4 of HUD Handbook 4350.3 contains four different model leases. Which version you use depends on which program your site falls under. It’s important to use the proper version of the model lease because certain clauses in each lease are tailored to specific programs. You can run into trouble with HUD and confuse residents about their rights and responsibilities if you use the wrong lease.
