Landlords needed for Hillcrest-Washington Coles relocation program
More than 250 Hillcrest-Washington Coles residents who are eligible for relocation assistance due to the Harbor Bridge Project are facing issues with finding decent, safe and sanitary homes, according to Del Richardson & Associates (DRA), the real estate consultant company helping with the relocation program.
DRA says the issues stem from a lack of rental housing in the Corpus Christi area.
To learn more about how they can assist tenants looking to relocate, landlords from around the area are invited to a special event tonight at the Oveal Williams Senior Center.
DRA says that many Hillcrest-Washington Coles tenants will receive enough money in relocation assistance to make a substantial down payment to purchase a home. Property owners are encouraged to attend the Landlord Outreach event tonight.
During the event, DRA will provide information and resources to property owners on program benefits to landlords and relocation assistance to tenants.
"This is an opportunity for the Corpus Christi landlord community to provide quality housing, receive fair compensation, and a long term tenant," a press release from DRA says.
The Oveal Williams Senior Center is located at 1414 Martin Luther King in Corpus Christi. The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m.
