How may the owner terminate the lease?

The owner may only evict the tenant from the contract unit by instituting a court action. The owner must notify LHA in writing of the commencement of procedures for termination of tenancy, at the same time that the owner gives notice to the tenant under state or local law. The notice to LHA may be given by furnishing LHA with a copy of the notice given to the tenant.

During the term of the lease, the owner may not terminate the tenancy except on the following grounds by court action:

            1.       Serious or repeated violation of the terms and conditions of the lease.

            2.       Violation of federal, state, or local law that imposes obligations on the tenant in connection                       with the occupancy or use of the contract unit and the premises.

            3.       Criminal activity.

            4.       Other good cause. During the first year of the lease, the owner may not terminate the                        tenancy for "other good cause" unless it is because of something the family did or failed to                       do.

The tenant is not responsible for the Housing Assistance Payment which is the rent portion paid by LHA. The owner may not terminate the tenancy due to LHA's abatement of the owner's Housing Assistance Payment. Abatement means that the owner will not receive payment from LHA for the days that the unit was not in compliance with Housing Quality Standards (HQS).
