Can I purchase another home?

Yes. The participating family may sell its home to purchase another home under the home ownership program. All sales must be approved by the Garland Housing Agency. However, the total amount of time the family receives assistance on both homes is counted towards the time limit.

The Garland Housing Agency will not commence voucher assistance (either rental or home ownership) for occupancy of another unit so long as any family member owns any title or interest in the prior home.
