NAHMA published NAHMAnalysis 2012-0813 “Update on HUD Notice H 2012-05: Guidelines on Addressing Infestations in HUD-insured and Assisted Multifamily Housing’.” This NAHMAnalysis is intended to provide a general policy overview of HUD’s infestation guidance, including Notice H 2012-05.
Please note that this NAHMAnalysis does not constitute legal advice nor is it intended as compliance assistance.
NAHMA is pleased that HUD is retaining the current guidance in Notice H 2012-05. Notice H 2012-05 provides sound guidance that fairly balances tenant and O/A responsibilities for preventing and controlling vermin infestations. It guarantees that O/As can pursue reasonable remedies to address noncompliant tenants and does not conflict with existing HUD policies, regulations, and statute. It corrects policies from the previous Notice H 2011-20 “Guidelines on Bed Bug Control and Prevention in HUD Insured and Assisted Multifamily Housing,” which allowed the actions of noncompliant tenants to negatively affect other residents who comply with O/A instructions to prevent and control vermin infestations.
