What happens when you rent to a section 8 tenant?
When you rent to a Section 8 tenant, you will have to deal with frequent inspections of your property. Your local Public Housing Authority will send a Section 8 inspector to your property once a year. This inspection has to be done even if there has been no tenant turnover.
How do I apply for Section 8 housing?
If you have a specific property that you believe meets Section 8 guidelines and you would like to rent to tenants in need of affordable housing, you can apply to have that property (and any others you have) to be part of the Section 8 housing program. Contact your local PHA office.
How much will the Housing Voucher pay for Section 8?
The amount of the housing voucher will be between 90 percent and 110 percent of the Fair Market Rent. Depending on the condition of your property and the Fair Market Rent HUD has calculated for your area, you may be able to rent your property for a higher amount to a non-Section 8 tenant.
How do I advertise a section 8 rental property?
You will have two signed agreements–a lease with your tenant and the agreement with your housing agency. You can also advertise your vacancies through local newspapers and websites. On sites that are not Section 8-specific, be sure to note that you accept Section 8 vouchers.
