ATTENTION ALL PUBLIC HOUSING RESIDENTS
NOTICE OF ENTRY
On Monday,February 5, 2024 and Tuesday, February 6, 2024, the Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC), a contractor of HUD, will conduct inspections of all buildings, grounds, common areas, offices, maintenance work areas, community rooms, and resident units selected at random.
It is anticipated that the REAC Inspector will begin inspecting randomly selected MHA properties in the morning on February 5, 2024 and continuing on February 6, 2024. The REAC Inspector is responsible for randomly selecting which units will be inspected on this day. The Manhattan Housing Authority has no control over which units get inspected or what time during the day the inspections will take place.
Since we are not able to provide more specific information as to the timing of inspections or which units will be inspected, please have your unit ready for inspection by 8:00 a.m. on both days!
Please remember that being ready for inspection also includes all household members being appropriately dressed and ready for the Inspector and MHA Staff to enter the unit.
INSPECTIONS WILL BE CONDUCTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2024 AND TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2024 BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 8:00 A.M. AND 5:00 P.M.
Please note that for up to 5 business days past the completion of the inspection, a Quality Assurance Inspection (QAI) may be performed requiring re-entry of a Quality Assurance inspector to the same units inspected on the original inspection. It is not necessary for the tenants of units selected for inspection to be present during this inspection.
This inspection is required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and will be conducted by a Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) inspector. Manhattan Housing Authority staff will accompany the inspector from REAC, allow access to selected units and secure them upon completion of the inspection. It is important that you take your keys with you if you are not at home at the time we arrive to avoid a lockout. It is not required that you be present for the inspection.
Please see the back side of this notice for instructions on preparing for the inspection. Should you have questions or concerns OR if you are aware of any maintenance needs in your unit, please contact the office as soon as possible.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
