Section 8 For Landlords

Being a Section 8 Landlord could be great for you.  Here are just a few of the benefits:

  • Section 8 can increase the number of renters who can afford a property. Although the contract is between landlord and renter, the Section 8 Voucher pays a portion of the rent.

  • Periodic inspections by our trained inspectors help the landlord ensure that the rental unit is safe and meets HUD housing standards.

  • Landlords are encouraged to screen Section 8 applicants with the same background investigation they would use on any other tenant.

  • Inclusion in the program does not prohibit a landlord from renting to a tenant who does not use Section 8 voucher assistance.

If you are interested in becoming a participating landlord, call Section 8  Coordinator Rhonda Watts at 573-635-6163 for more information.
