HPD Not Responsible for Landlord's Alleged Failure to Comply with Section 8 Regs
LVT Number: #24833
Tenant sued HPD, claiming that the agency failed to enforce federal regulations governing the Section 8 program. The court granted HPD's request to dismiss the case. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant claimed that HPD had failed to enforce regulations by permitting her apartment to become uninhabitable and denying her request to move to another unit. But landlord, not HPD, was responsible for maintaining tenant's apartment.
