Jurisdiction

When owners receive a voucher from a prospective tenant, it’s important to make sure that the unit falls within the jurisdiction of the agency who issued the voucher.

Jurisdiction can be separated by city or county. There can be several agencies within a close proximity, each one covering a different jurisdiction, so be sure to identify the specific area your rental unit falls within. It’s important not to make assumptions that the prospective tenant is already aware of their agency jurisdiction or which jurisdiction the rental unit may fall within.  Always confirm that the rental unit falls within the jurisdiction of the agency who issued the voucher.

If there are any questions about jurisdictions, don’t hesitate to contact your housing agency representative for clarification.
