it’s pretty easy.

The property has to be inspected, and based on it passing they will tell you the allowable rent.

Basically, stuff has to work. Can’t be a pit.

Contact the local agency that administers Sect. 8 for the area where the property is located.

The process is pretty simple.

  1. Fill out the landlord form for the section 8 candidate.

  2. Schedule an inspection
    Important Note
    The inspection is much more strigent if the prospective tenant has a child under 6 years of age. This is becuase the inpector will look for loose paint and posible lead issues.

  3. make repairs based on the inpection

  4. Complete a one year lease with tenant

  5. Fill out any additional paper work

  6. Move them in

You can move them in sooner but section 8 will not pay until all paper work is processed.
