Recertifications & Collections

This department handles all rent changes and recertifications for all Public Housing tenants. This means that we will verify income and family status for all residents annually before the anniversary of your move in date. If you have any changes in income or family status they must be reported to us within 10 days of the change in the income.

We also handle all recertifications for properties that are managed by Albany Housing Authority that do not receive federal assistance.

We also handle all collections and eviction processes. If you have not paid your rent by the 25th of the month you will be sent a Petition for Court. Our office also handles all evictions for cause, which are sent out at the same time as petitions for non payment.
