The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program offers financial assistance for rental housing to low income families or individuals. The rental assistance provides opportunities to low income families by partnering with owners of existing housing units. This opportunity enables families to rent all housing types throughout the city, thus avoiding a concentration of assisted housing. In order for someone to apply for this program, they must complete a Section 8 application during an open waiting list period that is held by a housing authority.
How could I rent to someone who has completed a Section 8 application online?
Housing authorities guarantees owners a portion of the rent through the participant’s rental assistance. The intent of the program is to lessen the burden on the family’s budget for housing costs, helping them to better afford their rental payment. This results in more consistent, timely and full payments to owners. Additionally, periodic inspection of the unit helps to alert landlords of required and/or recommended repairs. The Housing List Blog in the Section 8 and Subsidized Housing Online Packet helps landlords to locate tenants and rent their Section 8 apartments online.
People who receive Section 8 vouchers go find their own rental housing and use the vouchers they receive from their housing agency to help pay the rent. Basically, the voucher means that the Federal Government will pay a specific amount of the rent.
If you wish to rent to Section 8 Voucher holders, you should inform the local Housing Authority of the availability of your property and also indicate in your advertising that you welcome Section 8 Voucher holders. Ultimately, it is the voucher holder’s decision whether or not to rent your property. Of course, as the landlord, you would screen the Section 8 voucher holder just as you would any other prospective tenant.
There are three primary reasons a unit must be inspected. The first is very simple; HUD requires that any unit being considered for or currently in the Section 8 housing program must meet HQS in order for the owner to receive rental assistance payments. The second is to ensure that there are no health or safety issues that will adversely affect the participant. The third is to assist property owners in identifying issues that poses a risk to their tenants or require routine maintenance that if left unaddressed could results in substantial repair costs or serious injury.
When someone has located Section 8 houses for rent, potential tenant can only fill out a Section 8 application online or in person when applications are being accepted by a housing authority. The Section 8 application process is always free.
