RCAP Solutions Is Here to Support Landlords and Tenants
Given the unprecedented circumstances landlords are facing during the ongoing pandemic, RCAP Solutions wants to ensure that they and in turn, their tenants, feel supported during these times. We offer a wide variety of programs which assist income-eligible tenants with paying their rent. These programs, designed with both parties in mind, pay subsidies directly to the landlord.
Our flagship program, the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program, is currently seeking participants who have available units to lease. All landlords are encouraged to participate, including those currently renting to HCV tenants! By participating in the HCV Program, we can help you meet your financial goals as a property owner and provide families with a place they are proud to call home.
Why should you participate?
Many landlords participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Program because payment is guaranteed. Landlords do not have to worry about late or missed payments for the voucher amount since it is paid directly from RCAP Solutions.
Some of the benefits of participating in this program include…
- You will get timely and dependable payments from RCAP Solutions
- You will get your full rental payment
- You will receive regular inspections
- You may request annual reasonable rent increases
- You have the opportunity to help low-income, elderly, disabled, and veteran households, as well as families with children, by providing affordable housing
New/Prospective Landlords – How to Participate:
Becoming an RCAP Solutions landlord is simple! To become a landlord with the HCV Program, you will need an HCV tenant.
To get your property seen by HCV families, you can market your unit with us! We have partnered with GoSection8, which allows you to list your rental units online. Listings are available to potential Housing Choice Voucher families seeking housing in the private market. To list your available units with us, visit rcap.gosection8.com and select “List Your Property”.
If a voucher family requests to rent your property; conduct your usual screening, fill out and submit the request for tenancy approval (RFTA) – which the voucher family will have, and prepare the property for inspection. You and the voucher family will sign your lease and then you and RCAP Solutions will sign the Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) contract.
Current Landlords – How to Participate:
Landlords who are currently renting to HCV tenants are also encouraged to list their available and upcoming units at rcap.gosection8.com. In addition, property owners should check out our webpage for a list of additional programs.
Need assistance with listing? We’re happy to list your available units on your behalf. Please download and complete the Property Listing Form by clicking here.
We have dedicated staff to help make the lease-up process as smooth as possible and to ensure inspections and move-ins take place in a timely manner. We will work with tenants in advance to ensure they understand the responsibilities of maintaining their homes and lease obligations. Our staff will continue to check in with families and property owners are welcome to reach out at any time.
We understand that times are difficult for both landlords and tenants. We hope you will consider participating in the Section 8 program and become a part of this important work, while at the same time meeting your financial goals. Our team has a long history of supporting both parties through our programs and services. If you have questions related to your rights/responsibilities as a landlord, we’re here to help.
