Instructor-ledTraining From RBD

HUD Management & Occupancy Challenge - Only 3 classesleft in 2016!

SinceHUD has indicated that we should expect an increase in the number of Management& Occupancy Reviews (MOR) conducted in 2016, we have created a class to allowowner/agents and property managers to take a step back and review HUD'smultifamily occupancy requirements. This is not a review of basic requirements,but rather a discussion about best practices designed to help you identifycommon mistakes that may otherwise be revealed during the MOR.

Trainingincludes sample forms, notices and checklists.
