WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Wilmington Housing Authority is moving into their second phase of housing development inspections.
These inspections will be in the Houston Moore development starting Thursday. Members of the agency are urging tenants to clean their homes before the inspection process starts.
"Just get in there and get the units clean because they're seeking evictions if they aren't," said Cindy Genwright, a property manager with the WHA.
Genwright said the inspectors look at a number of different items inside the units including the kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms.
Genwright and Jeff Hovis, Chairman of the WHA, took WECT on a tour of one unit that was vacated and left a mess.
"A unit shouldn't look like that," Hovis said. "I don't care what the situation is. The person just discarded their stuff and left it for us to pick up."
Genwright said eviction notices will come for tenants who can't keep their homes clean.
"Just go ahead and get it cleaned up and you won't have to worry about it when we inspect it," Genwright said.
