The process to become a Section 8 landlord is actually quite simple. There isn’t a Section 8 landord application as such. The potential Section 8 landlord will contact their housing authority when their property is ready to be inspected. If it passes inspection, the landlord will complete the Housing Assistance Payment Contract with the Housing Authority. After this, they will seek out tenants that have completed a Section 8 housing application. This is typically referred to as low income housing or a low income housing application situation. Like the tenant, the landlord will have to complete these necessary forms in the area that they wish to rent. For example, if their property is in Houston, Texas then they must contact and follow the instructions of the housing authority of Houston, Texas.
- Write a REPLY below and get on the HOUSING LIST. Comment on your current housing situation and what type of housing you are looking for, Section 8 or otherwise. This will allow landlords to contact you directly if they can accommodate you.
