  Tenant Utility Allowances (UA)

Note: Refresh/reload this site at all pages; if you previously visited this site, because your Browser stores web pages previously visited.

For those projects with Tenant Utility Allowances (UA) Owners are required to submit annual UA Surveys. HUD has issued new instructions for preparation/submission of annual UA Surveys with Section 8 Contract Renewals/Annual Rent Adjustments and with Section 202 PRAC Annual Budget-based renewals.


Owners/Agents must now establish a Tenant Utility Analysis (TUA) Baseline; HUD will not accept any other type annual TUA mythology. Multifamily property owners and agents (O/A) must establish baseline utility allowances for each of their bedroom sizes.


For the two years after the baseline is established, O/A have the option to perform a factor-based utility analysis using HUD published Utility Allowance Factor (UAF).


If you need my assistance in preparing an annual UA Surveys, Contract Renewals or Annual Rent Adjustments, please contact me.
