Your Questions About Apartment For Rent Low Income

September 21, 2012

Mandy asks…

If there is an income restriction on an apartment complex is it considered low income housing ?

For example if the income restriction is 23,000 (the maximum I could make to stay in the complex) is it considered low income housing, section 8 housing, or something close to that ? Can someone please explain it to me, I’m trying to rent an apartment in the complex..

Administrator answers:

YES! Having a max income is the definition of low income housing. It is not Section 8. If you make to much then you cannot live there. I know it may not seem fair, but think of those that make less money and cannot afford a conventional apartment.

EDIT: Not all tenants on Section 8 are going to cause a problem, PEOPLE!!! All Section 8 means is that they are disabled, seniors or do not make enough money to support their family. It REALLY PISSES me off when people put down Section 8 or tell people to be careful in properties that take Section 8. When did poor and less fortunate in this country come to mean criminal and degenerate?????

Some of my best and longest term tenants are on Section 8.

EDIT: That is YOUR specific location. A bad governing body in your specific location DOES NOT make Section 8 bad all over the country. Bad mouthing your local section 8 here does NOT do any one any good!!

Administrator answers:

I’m a little confused, why would you reat it and not live in it? Are you talking about buying the complex itself and being the landlord?

We both want to go back to college and also live in low income housing for a few years so we can become stable, does anyone know any programs that help with this in any state? I need help with daycare, rent and college

Administrator answers:

Go online to college, University of phoenix offers great classes and full aide. That means you would not have to pay for school til you were done and then its like 200 a month. Then you will get discounts on taxes and car insurance, all kinds of stuff!

George asks…

can a low income property refuse to allow people with higher incomes to rent?

so this is the situation i moved to this small town in western washington for a job. well there are only 3 apartment complexes in town. one is regular with no income restrictions. the other 2 are low income only. the problem is the apartment that has no restrictions is small and has no amenities and all rented out . and the other 2 places say if you make more then this you cant rent from them and they have everything washer dryers fireplaces. and to make things worse is the nearest town is 35 miles away.

Administrator answers:

They are required by federal law to refuse to rent to people outside the rent limits. The rent is low because the tax payers are paying part of it, and that help paying rent is only for low income familes.
