Frequently Asked Questions
DOES THE SECOND CHANCE LEASING PROGRAM FORGIVE INCOME OR CRIMINAL HISTORY?
No, SCL only forgives evictions older than one year.
CAN A TENANT GO AHEAD AND MOVE INTO A PROPERTY WHILE COMPLETING THE SCL PROGRAM?
No, the tenant must complete the Fit to Rent program before they apply for housing or before their application can be reconsidered.
IF I HAVE AN OUTSTANDING BALANCE WITH A UTILITY COMPANY, IS THAT FORGIVEN THROUGH THE PROGRAM?
No, all utility company outstanding balances must be paid off before the tenant can rent through Alltrade. However, Alltrade will overlook outstanding balances with Alltrade or another landlord, as long as the tenant has made a payment plan with their financial counselor.
MY EVICTION WILL BE A YEAR OLD NEXT MONTH, CAN I GO AHEAD AND START THE PROGRAM?
No, tenants cannot enroll into the SCL program until their eviction is one year old.
I NEED HOUSING NOW; CAN THE SECOND CHANCE LEASING PROGRAM PROVIDE THAT?
No, SCL is an eviction forgiveness program and is not for emergency housing. The program typically takes at least 30-60 days to complete.
I HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY EVICTED FROM AN ALLTRADE PROPERTY. AM I STILL ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM?
It depends on the reason for your prior eviction. Individuals who have been evicted from an Alltrade property for reasons other than non-payment are ineligible to participate in the program.
