As a warning though, my clients have also had eviction problems with Section 8 tenants. Evictions are normally expensive and time-consuming already, but if the tenant wants to make it difficult for you then it could take months, perhaps even years to successfully evict the tenant. By then, I can almost guarantee that the interior of the unit will be close to, if not completely, destroyed.
Best of luck to you! I hope you find the best Section 8 tenants out there, there are definitely good tenants, it just takes the extra effort, energy, and time to find them.
1. make sure your units are in good condition clean and upgraded
2choose the right tenant-filter 3 you need to be able to communicate and shared responsibility
4 you have rights- so does your tenants
have balance in what you expect from them good luuck
On the other hand, Section 8 in Cincinnati was a completely different experience... not because of the tenants but because of the organization. There is way too much to type out here, so I wrote this article hoping it would help people in the future: http://brenandmike.influxentrepreneur.info/section-8-in-cinc

It was a win win for everyone involved... I'm sure there are some horror stories out there, but I believe that open communication and understanding the system can produce a successful program.
