Anyone working with Huntsville Housing Authority and section 8 housing? Overall thoughts with the process and placement of tenants. Good experience, bad experiences, other experiences with all aspects?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Jeff, great question. I am also looking for leads on dealing with section 8 tenants. I have a document of some of the requirements your home needs to have to pass inspection, but I am having a hard time reaching anyone at the office.
Would like to see if anyone else has dealt with this in the Huntsville, Alabama market.
@Asa Ifill Good morning! I have lots of experience with Section 8 here in Madison County. Feel free to reach out. As a property manager, I'm very supportive of the program.
I'm a fan of the program too. Here is an important note and common misconception: they do not place tenants they just approve the process and pay full or partial payment of rent based on the tenants voucher; the landlord (or their PM) still screens and places tenants. The program, in my opinion, does not place any real extra burden on the landlord, they can be a little picky with certain inspection items (but those are usually very cheap, ie having a cap on the bolts at the base of a toilet) anything else on their inspection should just be common practice for a landlord (if you take care of your investment with basic repairs and maintenance there shouldn't be issues). Getting in touch with the office can be an issue, especially since covid hit, if you're trying to call try emailing too.
