This is part 2 detailing $13,000 in damage at our rental condos by Section 8 tenants. Part 1 is here: http://youtu.be/ovtinAAqb_Y?hd=1
This property got only $4,000 damage. Our other condo got $9,000 in damage. Section 8 Housing program is provided by HUD, providing affordable housing to poor and disabled. You and I fund this via taxes. Landlords you can get your property approved as a Section 8 property. The problem with Section 8 is you often get young single mothers with a few young kids, all with different last names, and entitlement issues, we as society owe them something. You and I are funding sinful lifestyles. They have their hands out, gimme attitudes and no appreciation of blessings given to them, no respect for your property. Their criminal dead beat boyfriends move in, which is a felony. They start sub-renting to others as well, collecting rent while getting free rent from the government.
There's no pride of ownership, they don't maintain property, don't follow rules, don't change the AC filters you provide them not too much to ask, takes a minute, my Section 8 Tenants never paid their part of the rent on time, you always have to go collect it and put up with lies. They think so little of you that lying is no big deal. They think they are smarter than you by lying. There are good Section 8 tenants who treat your place well, but good luck finding the wheat through all the chaff. The bad apples ruin it for good ones, people yell at landlords like me as if it's our fault, instead of going after the bad apples. Many condos no longer allow Section 8.
I'm not saying all section 8 people are like this, obviously many are good. But I have seen both my units wrecked and unusable, they even broke tile floors! I personally know 3 other Section 8 families who rendered their units unusable. Every person I know who rented to Section 8 had their units trashed, or tile broken. How do you break tile floors? So I am not basing this on just my 2 units, but a reasonable sampling of people. For those who want to call me bigoted, falsely claiming I am saying all Section 8 renters are bad, maybe YOU should rent to them. Combine that with an Agency who lies to you and promises retribution to renters who break the rules, but then does not hold them accountable, I think it's a program landlords might want to steer clear of. I tried to complain to HUD Section 8 and kept getting the runaround, everyone passed the buck to the point I was never able to lodge a formal complaint with HUD. Case workers offered no assistance and never return my calls or emails.
