I own a few condo's in an over 55 community. I am thinking about renting to to a Section 8 tenant. I am asking 1,095, a fair price which they are wiliing to pay. They want to setup the lease for 975 and pay the difference upfront (1,440.) They said Section 8 won't pay the full price. Why does section 8 care? If they only pay 975 why would they care if I charged 2,000? Is there anything wrong with setting it up the way they want?
