Place your confidence in First Housing for reliable tenant compliance monitoring and top notch training

Complying with public agencies’ affordable housing requirements isn’t always easy, but it is familiar territory for First Housing. State and local housing finance agencies, property managers, syndicators, private developers and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta have all depended on our expertise in ongoing compliance monitoring and consulting.
We have provided compliance monitoring for the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (including the Multifamily Tax-Exempt Bond, HC, SAIL, SHIP and HOME Programs) since 1984.


First Housing takes a thorough, systematic approach, including detailed procedures for monitoring the specific income and rent restrictions required by each program. Our services include:

  • Pre-occupancy consultation
  • Annual management reviews
  • One-time property compliance reviews
  • On-site property inspections
  • Initial monitoring review
  • Ongoing monitoring
  • Review of program reports and tenant income certifications
  • Informed answers to specific questions regarding federal and state compliance

All information is gathered and reported according to the individual program’s standards to provide an accurate, detailed record in the event of management review. Owners rely on this longstanding expertise, complemented by our online compliance training, to ensure their properties meet all the applicable standards, substantially reducing the risk of penalties.

First Housing is also a valuable resource for identifying problem properties and working to bring them into compliance.
