Participants in HUD’s Section 8 Voucher Programs BILLING CODE 4210–67–P Immediate successor owners of foreclosed properties in which section 8 voucher recipients reside become participants in HUD’s Section 8(o) tenant-based voucher programs and must comply with Sections 702 and 703. The following requirements apply to such foreclosed properties as long as the immediate successor in interest retains the interest and until the sunset date of the PTFA, December 31, 2012. • A demand upon the section 8 voucher recipient to vacate the property prior to a sale of the property shall not constitute ‘‘other good cause’’ as meant in HUD’s regulations on termination of tenancy (24 CFR 982.310), except that: Æ The owner may terminate the tenancy effective on the date of the transfer to the owner if the owner: fi Will occupy the unit as a primary residence; and fi Has provided the tenant with a notice to vacate at least 90 days before the effective date of such notice. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR C. Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) With respect to PHAs, a PHA, after foreclosure, provides payments under the HAP contract to the new owner for the remaining term of the HAP contract, subject to the exception for an owner who will occupy the unit as a primary residence. In the case of the owner/ occupant, the HAP contract would continue for the required notice period. The new owner also takes subject to the existing lease, which can only be terminated as described in this section. The Office of Public and Indian Housing will be providing additional guidance as PHAs may need to help ensure that the requirements of Section 703 are carried out where applicable. IV. Additional Guidance As noted earlier in this notice, HUD will provide additional guidance as may be necessary to help ensure that the requirements of Sections 702 and 703.
