Getting section 8 tenants.

3 Replies

I'd like to start renting to section 8 tenants. How do I get involved in the section 8 program? Do I need to do a lot of paperwork? Is there an application I need to fill out. My property is in St. Louis. Any help would be useful.

Thanks.

Hello, I have a few section 8 units.  I would be more than happy to walk you through the steps.  The best part of section 8 is the rent is systematically deposited into your account each month.

1. Fill out tenant paperwork

2. Schedule section 8 inspection

3. Complete any repairs requested.

4. Schedule final inspection.

5. Start collected rental deposits.

Good day world

Contact your local housing authority. Many will have a website with a section that explains the process for landlords. They will be glad to hear from you.

I personally found the Section 8 Bible Vol 1 and 2 to be EXTREMELY helpful and would recommend them to any investor looking to go S8.
