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.
