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.
