Changes in Property Ownership and Management

By |February 25th, 2019|

This month's topic is on how we process an ownership change.  Before we get to that, we hope you’re enjoying this monthly blog series for landlords. So far, we’ve provided a primer on our Permanent Supportive Housing and Rapid Rehousing programs, how to process move-outs and damage claims in the programs, the benefits of direct deposit and the launch of Padmission, our new web-based housing search platform.  Be sure to catch up on the series if you’ve missed any and share them with your team [...]

Padmission: HOM’s New Online Housing Search Platform

By |February 1st, 2019|

We're incredibly excited to share our latest innovation in our efforts to end homelessness.  Padmission is our new web-based housing search platform custom-built for our housing program participants, their case managers and landlords. How Padmission Works Padmission is like other online housing search services in that it allows landlords to list and market their properties to prospective tenants.  However, Padmission is different because it is a closed platform just for HOM-assisted housing programs. Landlords indicate which of the HOM housing programs they accept in their [...]

When you receive your housing assistance payment(s) via ACH, we also send a detailed itemization to you via email [...]

By |November 20th, 2018|

We don’t have to tell you that tenants don’t always leave their units in pristine condition when they move out. You understand that this is part of the business. The good news is that most of the housing programs that we operate allow us to cover some amount of tenant-caused damages, unpaid rent and even vacancy loss. There is a process and some limitations, so let’s review. Programs and Damage Claim Features Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Programs Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) Programs Tenant-Caused Damages Up to [...]

By |October 31st, 2018|

We believe individuals, families and communities are safer, healthier and stronger when everyone has a home. At HOM, we are dedicated to building communities where the promise of home is a reality for everyone. We can’t make good on that promise without landlords to participate in our housing programs.  To help provide current and useful information about the housing programs to our landlords, we are re-committing to our blog and will send out a new post primarily directed at landlords every month. Topics will include [...]
