What Extra Fees Are Allowed for Items or Services
You may want to charge households extra fees for certain items or services, especially ones that cost you money. For instance, you may want to charge households a fee for paying rent late or for transferring to another unit.
But HUD doesn’t let you charge households fees over and above their share of the rent whenever you want. You can only charge extra fees that HUD specifically permits or that your local HUD office has approved [HUD Handbook 4350.3, par. 6-21]. HUD makes clear that you can’t charge certain types of fees at assisted sites.
