VHDA Offers Free Renter Education eBook

As we all know, whether it’s a house, apartment, duplex or townhouse, renting a place to call home has advantages for many people at some point in their lives. Renting can be a good option for young adults just starting out on their own, as well as single parents, empty nesters and others who don’t want the responsibility for repairs, maintenance and other aspects of homeownership.

VHDA has offered homebuyer education since 1996 and we’re pleased to announce that we now have a renter education eBook on our website. How to be a Successful Renter is free and a great resource for potential renters, as well as current tenants. This eBook makes it easy to understand the ins and outs of successfully finding, leasing and living well in an apartment or rental home.

Our renter education curriculum was developed in collaboration with many industry partners, including HUD, the Virginia Fair Housing Office of Richmond, the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the Legal Aid Society of Eastern Virginia and many other stakeholders throughout the Commonwealth. Their valuable feedback is greatly appreciated.

In addition to being a lifestyle choice, becoming a renter is also a legal business transaction. That’s why we hope you’ll share our new eBook — in addition to, our free online rental housing search tool — with those who want to rent. With both of these tools at their disposal, they’ll be able to find a home that fits their needs and budget. They’ll also be empowered with the information they need to choose their rental home with the care and knowledge that decision deserves.
