Most of us don't handle this type of situation. I was unaware of it as well until I read the response below explaining it. Yes, we've all seen this post before. It's just that many of us have no experience in this specific type of deal. Section 8 seems like a different program after reading the explaination provided.
I do work the Queens market. I will say since you are looking for a 2 bedroom flat for $1200 a month, you will find that rough going as that amount is slightly lower than many one bedroom flats. I certainly wish you all the best and if Yulia can supply a broker familiar with this type of situation, you should contact her for help. As you are blessed, I hope you can find something God willing. Good luck.
