Apply for Housing in Texas

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.

    My name is Thea; currently I live in NC. I have a bone disorder and need to relocate to a warmer climate. While working on my degree, I became disabled; my disability is most times invisible. This keeps me from being considered for top of the list placement. I would need a single floor and am willing to pay up to $200. I am seeking HUD Housing; low income housing and Section 8 application waiting list. I need one bedroom no more than two.

    My name is Leslie Wiggins. I am a mother of one. I recently relocated to Houston, TX from Georgia, with my sons’s father in hopes of finding better jobs so that we will be able to fully provide for our son and to hopefully create our solid foundation so that we may later get married and expand our family. I am looking for a move-in ready, section 8, 2BR/2BA, single family home in the Houston or Angleton area. Preferrably within walking or metro distance from an elementary school but not mandatory. I recently started working at a local Walmart and am able to pay $300 for rent until I get situated with my own transportation and childcare and my son’s father is able to look for work. If there is any landlord who believes they may be able to assist me, please contact me at lwiggins2008@yahoo.com I look forward to hearing from you.
