HUD Special Claims

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

Change 4 to HUD Handbook 4350.3 REV-1 removed the Billing and Special Claims chapter from the handbook, but Special Claims are absolutely permitted. The special claims process is designed to reimburse owner of eligible HUD projects for the owner’s financial loss resulting from vacancy loss, unpaid rent and tenant damages. However, in order to get this reimbursement, the owner/agent must file for the reimbursement. While owner/agents are not required by HUD to file for special claims, management agents who do not file special claims are essentially choosing not to collect funds that the project’s owner is entitled to.

Join this session by expert speaker Paul Flogstad, where he will explore the HUD Special Claims in length and all the information needed in order to process the Special Claim request.

Session Highlights:

  • The four types of Special Claims and who is eligible to submit them

  • What forms and documentation are required to submit a claim

  • Five steps to follow before move-in to ensure you can make a claim after move-out

  • Eligibility and Submission requirements

  • Calculating the ready for occupancy date and vacancy claim period

  • Waiting List requirements and common issues requiring Owner/Agent corrective action

  • Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan (AFHMP)  – role of advertising compliance, as well as Owner/Agent review and update requirements
