Inspection – Tenant Fail Item Review
Inspection - Tenant Fail Item Review In order to improve consistency in our inspections, we are working on developing a list of failed inspection items that would be considered “Tenant” fail items. If there are additional items that you would want the Housing Authority to consider “Tenant” fail items, please email Mike.Eddins@dekalbhousing.org.
  1. Missing outlets and switch covers
  2. Missing door knobs
  3. Wall/door/cabinet damage – holes, missing hardware, graffiti
  4. Housekeeping – carpet cleaning, floor cleaning, stove cleaning
  5. Broken windows
  6. Smoke detector batteries
  7. Mildew on tub, shower walls or ceiling in the bathroom
  8. Broken or missing light globes
  9. Car parked off pavement in the yard
  10. Unregistered or inoperable vehicles
  11. Garbage in the yard
  12. Unmaintained yard
Additionally: if there are inspection issues at the property resulting in the issuance of multiple citations by DeKalb County Code Enforcement, we may propose to terminate the family’s voucher or terminate the property owner’s contract and ban the unit from participating in the program in the future.
