Get in touch with the Atlanta Housing Authority and attend a Landlord briefing.
I have had properties with section 8 for 15 years and also do home inspections.
Get in touch with me with any questions.

Your property must conform to AHA's guidlines. You also have to get registered with AHA. Here is the link to AHA main page:

The landlord portal page:

You are responsible for locating the tenant and preparing the 12 month lease.

You would need to call the administrator for Section 8 in your area.
Atlanta Housing Authority
230 John Wesley Dobbs Avenue
Atlanta, GA 30303
Phone: (404) 892-4700

Most housing authorities have booklets or training to explain Section 8 and the process. Landlords must have their property inspected by a division of their local PHA in order to rent to a Section 8 tenant and accept the Section 8 housing voucher. The landlord will prepare their own lease that will be no less than for one year.
