Handling Security Deposits in Compliance with HUD and Avoiding MOR Findings.

Since security deposits provide owner/agents with some financial protection when a tenant moves out of the unit and fails to fulfill his/her obligations under the lease, it is necessary to understand what to charge for a security deposit. You also need to know what needs to be done with that security deposit; what needs to be done with interest earned; and what needs to be done with refunding the security deposit, to be in compliance with HUD. Also, any additional charge other than rent needs to be understood as well.

As HUD has started to conduct Management and Occupancy Reviews (MOR’s), these dos and don’ts need to be understood and fully complied with, in order to make sure that there will be a good report on the MOR. As this could result in findings not corrected, HUD may withhold some of your voucher requests, or worse, decide to no longer work with the O/A.

Join expert speaker Debbie Hixon in this webinar to understand the concept of security deposits and how it must be dealt with in compliance with HUD. You will also be able to learn about other associated charges which you as a property owner can ask for from the tenant. Plus, the session will discuss several other useful subjects related to MOR.

Session Highlights

  • When must a security deposit be collected?
  • When tenant’s rent changes, does that change the security deposit as well?
