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.
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
WOULD YOU HAVE SECTION 8 VACANCIES FOR THAT OR AFTER THAT DATE? I AM LOOKING FOR A 1/1 AND MY VOUCHER ALLOWS FOR $798.00 TO START. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF POSSIBLE LETTING KNOW WITH A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY, NEIGHBORHOOD (Little Havana, Gables, Grove, 8th. Street or SW - ZIP 33133, 33134, 33135) AND DEPOSIT AMOUNT. I AWAIT YOUR AFFIRMATIVE REPLY, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

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.
