Since you are not the typical Section 8 tenants, the key question is: Can you afford a regular rental that charges more than the Section 8 amount? Example: if your Section 8 voucher is $1268./month for a 2 bedroom, can you afford to pay $2,000./month for a 2 bedroom? Since you both have jobs and excellent credit, this means you can afford a regular rental for more than what Section 8 pays.

Therefore, you are to find a regular rental for an amount that you can afford ABOVE what Section 8 pays. DO NOT tell the landlord or property manager that you have a Section 8 voucher. Let them pull your credit and verify your employmet & income. You want to be approved without the Section 8. Once you are approved, then tell the landlord or property manager that the rent will be partially paid with Section 8 and you will pay the balance from your own income. At this stage, the landlord or property manager can't take back the approval or deny you - they already approved you. Worst case scenario - they could say something nasty or tell you that you should have mentioned the Section 8 earlier in the process. If this happens, tell them you will notify the Housing Authority and file a discrimination lawsuit against them. What will happen is the Housing Authority will send 2 - 3 "testers" - one applicant with a Section 8 voucher and the other applicant without a Section 8 voucher. If the "testers" are discriminated, then the landlord will face consequences.

Good Luck! Just to let you know - what I wrote will not work with the typical Section 8 tenant because most voucher tenants cannot afford to pay the difference in rent and don't have excellent credit.

Some of these listings are scams. I've come across the same problem. You can do one of two these. One, you can write a letter to the Board of Realtors reporting the agent or you can complain directly to the agency for whom they work for, if they list it. ... more
