MHCO has uploaded a revised Form 1 (Resident Application) and a completely new Form 1A. MHCO created the additional form (Form 1A) to accompany the general application (Form 1) to be used if the applicant reports any criminal history. These changes will go a long way in complying with the HUD memo, without unduly burdening landlords and managers.
We are currently working on language for your 'screening criteria' - we hope to have that available shortly. There will be an extensive seminar on the new application process at the MHCO Annual Conference on October 24th and 25th. In the meantime MHCO will be providing information as it becomes available.
If you have any questions please contact the MHCO office at 503-391-4496.
