Your Questions About Section 8 Houses For Rent

June 12, 2013

George asks…

can my neighbor rent to section 8 housing?

we have a quiet neighborhood where after the bubble burst we had several foreclosures which in turn turned into rental properties. after the first set of tenants moved out of my neighbors house he now intends to rent his 3 bedroom home to two adult women and 4 daughters, who are appying for section 8 assistance. can my neighbor “zone” his property as section 8 housing, and will this significantly depreciate my and my neighbors’ property values?

Administrator answers:

Section 8 is not a zoning,. Any residence can be used for section 8.

Appraisers will not know about the section 8, so value is not altered.

The only difference is you are going to have neighbors that live in a neighborhood they are unwilling to pay for themselves. YOU via your federal income tax are paying their rent.

They won’t, you HAVE to assure a 12 month lease, and you will be foreclosed before then.
