How do I apply for section 8 housing in Martinsburg,West Virginia?

I need some help on how I can go about applying for section 8 housing? how can I get approved for section 8 housing? do they help people faster depending on the situation? do I need to have an eviction notice or something?

Administrator answers:

You apply with the housing authority in your county.

They do move a few people ahead of the line, disabled senior citizens living in a shelter do come up first. Everyone else has to wait their turn. It will take more then 2 years.

They do not need an eviction. They need birth certificates, social security cards and proof of income.

Lisa asks…

How do you go about turning a rental property into section 8 housing.?

I’m looking into buying a couple properties in lower income areas, and i hear they are in areas with section 8 housing. Ive been told, its a good program, So I’m curious about it. Also do you know of where i could go to find some info on the program. Thank You for any help.

Administrator answers:

This is the first I have ever heard it was a good program.

It is government paid housing for the lazy. The problem is the lazy have no regard for your property and will destroy it. And as they will never have anything in life you can’t sue them. Not a great deal for the landlord.

But if you are a gluten for punishment all you have to do is advertise you will accept the voucher and wait for one to show up. Once you have that the housing authority does its first inspection and you are good to go.

The HA will limit the amount you can charge for rent, roughly 80% of fair market rent.

The voucher holders tend to move around a lot, once they screw up one house they move on to the next one, so you will have one for at least a year.
