Section 8 Questions
Q: I have my voucher, what is the next step?
A: Once you have found a house that is appropriate for your voucher, you need to submit an application. We cannot determine if your voucher will cover our asking rent. You should discuss that with the Section 8/HUD office. Keep in mind, most voucher amounts include the funds for the landlord to pay the utilities. In "most" cases, we do not pay ANY utilities.
Q: Once I my application is approved, what do I do?
A: Once you are accepted for a home, you need to bring your RTA to us for us to complete our portion. Then, you are responsible for taking the RTA to the Section 8 office. The Section 8 office will then inspect the home. Once the house has passed inspection, you need to pay your security deposit in full and sign the lease.
