Do I Like Being a Section 8 Landlord?
When it comes to being a Section 8 landlord, I definitely have mixed feelings. While the rent is eventually paid up, 8 out of 10 times it will be late.
Some Section 8 tenants do not listen to your views on how you want the rental property to be taken care of.
My real life experience with Section 8: I have seen 5 cars parked at my one-bedroom rental apartment. I have a Section 8 tenant who owes me $11 every month which he has not paid up in 5 months straight.
Another tenant signed a lease agreement with a no-dog policy (in front of the case worker) and I found one in the rental property the next day. Another time the lock to my rental property was stuck and I had to kick down the door.
If I could go back 15 years ago to when I first started, I would not become a Section 8 landlord (to put it nicely.)
