Caveat Renter – Those with legitimate disabilities, especially hidden disabilities, should think twice before living in HAP properties. There appears to be collusion amongst the HAP appointed property managers and HAP to flout HUD regulations on technicalities. And those who bring legitimate complaint are harassed and intimidated.
Recently, a prominant attorney for one of the larger prop mgmnt firms went to The Bureau of Labor and Industry (which enforces fair housing law in PDX) and tried to interfere with investigative efforts and to influence BOLI in favor of landlords.According to the OR Bar, such behavior is unethical and possibly subject to disciplinary proceeding.
What renters need to know is that the lease they sign does not reflect HAP's actual operating and compliance policies, and that HAP's legal team has apparently adopted an "if we can get away with it, it's legal" strategy. I now know exactly what it feels like to have" made a deal with the devil". I urge you, if you can, to avoid HAP housing and pay more for decent treatment.
