Rent Reasonableness 

Section 8 Inspections

Rent Reasonableness Market Analysis

DHA contracts with Socialserve.com, the same company that lists available units for our participants to determine the rent reasonableness of a unit.

Rent reasonableness is calculated at the time of the initial inspection or when a rent increase is requested. If the requested rent exceeds the rent reasonableness, the rent will need to be reduced to the market area rent to execute the Lease and Contract. If the landlord disagrees, the client will not be able to lease the unit.

There are a number of factors that determine rent reasonableness, including:
• Amenities
• Age of the unit
• Type of unit
• Square footage
• Number of bathrooms
• Year built
