Urban Housing Solutions What makes Urban Housing Solutions (UHS) different? We’re an agency on a mission to provide as much affordable housing as we can. We are a 28-year-old nonprofit organization that tries to fill some of the unique housing gaps that exist in Nashville. We are part “housing developer,” part “property manager,” and part “social worker.” We currently own 33 properties that comprise 1,400 apartments across Davidson County. Four hundred of our units are occupied by people who were previously homeless, and another 150 apartments serve people with special housing needs (deaf, disabled, or extremely poor). Our social service staff of seven provides these individuals with supportive services and connections to care that help them live independently. The rest of the units are occupied by working Nashvillians – healthcare, construction, hospitality workers, and their families – who simply need an affordable place to live near work. From the very beginning, Urban Housing has created new forms of housing for Nashville. This started when we purchased an old, dilapidated motel on Murfreesboro Road, rehabbed it and offered the first permanent housing opportunity for homeless individuals in the state of Tennessee. It took nine banks to finance the acquisition and rehab because the project seemed so risky, but we prevailed and helped 170 previously homeless people off

the street and into apartments. We continue to operate this property today, allowing our neighbors to live in stable, supportive housing as they get back on their feet. Our next projects created housing for people living with HIV/AIDS (another first in Tennessee) and those beset by mental illness. For many years, UHS combined federal and state grants with loans to buy distressed properties, rehab them, and rent them to people with very low incomes. However, with the growing intensity of the affordable housing shortage in our city, we have ramped up our acquisition and construction of new affordable housing in recent years. In the past, our properties provided no more than 20 units – now we’re able to create as many as 275 new units in a single project! Using tax credit programs and grants from Nashville’s Barnes Housing Trust Fund for nonprofit housing developers, we have been able to add over 400 apartments to our portfolio over the last two years. We plan to add another 400 units over the next three years. Our staff is as unique as our housing portfolio. When we add property managers and leasing staff, we look for compassionate people who want to make a difference. We have divinity school graduates, social work majors, and previous residents working in our property management and administrative divisions. Our staff works for more than a paycheck – they work because they want to help. We are constantly on the lookout for properties where we can preserve “islands” of affordable housing in areas where rents are skyrocketing. For example, we own six properties in the popular East Nashville neighborhood, and our rents remain below $500 per month – roughly $1,000 below the average. So if any of you reading this story have a property you are ready to sell and want to help “save a little space” for all Nashvillians, give UHS a chance to make you an offer!

It’s the Law

Get the Notice Just Right Recent court decisions have relevance to cases in the Greater Nashville area. In one of those cases, the landlord delivered a non-payment notice to the tenant that included several months of rent and late fees, as well as administrative fees and attorney’s fees contractually due from the tenant. Some months’ rents were incorrectly included in the notice, and all the amounts demanded were lumped into one total balance. After the case was appealed through their courts, the ultimate finding was that even though there was as a non-payment breach of the lease, the notice was defective because of the confusing and incorrect amounts provided to the tenant. The language found in Tennessee’s Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act could lead to a similar result under the same circumstances. Even though your lease very likely does not require advance notice regarding non-payment of rent, if a notice is given, it should not cause the tenant to be confused. Our statute regarding notices based on violent or dangerous behavior requires that the notice “specifically detail the violation which has been committed and shall be effective only from the date of receipt of the notice by the tenant.” A notice of termination for any other reason has similar requirements: “the landlord may deliver a written notice to the tenant specifying the acts and omissions constituting the breach.” Whether the lease violation is for non-payment, violent or dangerous behavior, or other non-monetary breaches, the notice should provide enough detail that the tenant cannot assert that they don’t understand the basis for termination. The notice must be clear and correct. Also remember that notice periods are not the same.

by Nathan C. Lybarger, Law Office of Hall & Associates

6 GNAA

Whatever the basis of the notice, its delivery is almost as important as its contents. Indicate on the face of the notice how and when the notice is being delivered: to the tenant’s door, certified mail, first-class mail. Sending a copy of the notice via email is a good way of making sure the tenant receives the notice, but email cannot substitute for a legally required written notice. But wait, you’re not in the eviction business, you’re in the tenant retention business. The first notice you send doesn’t need to be a legal termination notice. A friendly but stern notice that late charges have become due, or a gentle reminder of property policies and procedures is a good way to encourage tenant compliance while also establishing a foundation if legal notice becomes necessary. If notice of termination of tenancy does become necessary, remember that statutory requirements are absolute, especially as they apply to landlords seeking eviction. Those requirements include State and Federal regulations, avoidance of Fair Housing liabilities, VAWA rights, and other pitfalls. Evidentiary concerns must also be considered. Your case will be required to be presented in accordance with the Court’s rules of evidence. Before sending a termination notice, verify that you have sufficient, admissible, and reliable evidence to support the basis for termination. If going to court is a possibility, get your attorney involved early to prevent unwanted delays and “get the notice just right.”

I lead my team by example, attending countless committees, as well as education courses, encouraging everyone I meet to join the GNAA and actively participate. I care about my commitment to our organization and its members. I would be honored to be your next Secretary/Treasurer!

I am a seasoned multifamily executive, leader and strategist. I specialize in motivating on-site teams to perform at higher levels, leading to an overall improvement in the financial performance of all my assets.

I enjoy sharing my experiences and lessons learned, in an effort to enrich the lives of my team and of those around me. I believe we are only as strong as our weakest member, and with that comes a great responsibility for encouragement, involvement, and leadership.
