MOHCD program homeowner compliance monitoring

Homeowners who bought their home through MOHCD must show that they are following program rules. MOHCD will contact homeowners by program, in batches.

Annual monitoring information

MOHCD has an occupancy requirement for homeowners, and this will be checked each year. You can still live in your unit if your income increases.

We'll ask for proof (see below) that everyone listed on the title lives at the home. You are not allowed to rent out your home on platforms like Airbnb.

Be sure to read the rules for your specific homebuyer program. We will also ask for proof that the rules are being followed.

Renting out any MOHCD sponsored properties without MOHCD’s prior written consent is illegal.  To report illegal renting and other fraud, you can call our anonymous housing hotline at (415) 701-5613 or email

  1. is your primary residence
