Under the regulation of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), all public housing authorities are required to conduct Housing Quality Standard (HQS) inspections of all Section 8 properties. These property standards ensure the housing units are decent, safe, and sanitary and should be enforced in a fair and consistent manner. The current regulations for HQS require meeting 13 aspects of housing quality, and include requirements for all types of housing units.  Landlords are responsible to maintain all units to HUD standards; the tenant is responsible for damages the tenant causes, and landlords should regulate those damages.
