Note to Section 8 Landlords

The Albany Housing Authority will charge a $75 fee for any re-inspection where the owner notifies us that the repair has been made but the deficiency has not been corrected, and when the time for repairs has elapsed and the deficiency has not been corrected. We will not impose the fee for any tenant-caused damages, for cases in which the inspector could not gain access to the unit, or for new deficiencies discovered during a re-inspection.
