How to Become a Landlord

The Marietta Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher program provides
rental assistance to low-income families in the private rental market.

To become an MHA Landlord, you must first list your property on the following websites. or

A current MHA participant must contact you first.  Once you receive an interest in your property, you must do the following:

  • Approve your renter through your application process
  • Fill out and complete the RTA Packet
  • When contacted by MHA for Landlord setup, you must fill out the Landlord Packet and submit all requested documentation

Once this is completed, an inspection will be scheduled.  This process can take up to 48 hours or longer depending on how quickly you submit your documents. When you receive notification that your landlord number is ready, you will need to register to the Landlord Portal.  This will allow you to:

  • Monitor the status of your unit inspection
  • Check the HAP payments you have received
  • Change contact information

You will be contacted by the assigned inspector to arrange access to the unit for the Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection.

A more detailed listing of how to get your unit ready for inspection is found on the Pre-Inspection Checklist.

The results of the inspection will be posted on your Landlord Portal soon after the inspection.

When the unit passes; you can submit a copy of the executed lease.

If the unit fails, the inspector will identify the deficiencies that require your attention. When these items are corrected, notify the inspector and coordinate a re-inspection of the unit. If the unit fails at the re-inspection, MHA will no longer consider this unit for program participation.

If MHA is not notified that the deficiencies have been corrected within 30 days of the initial inspection, MHA will no longer consider this unit for program participation.

After signing and submitting the HAP Contract, payment(s) will be released.
