I think I will have a nicer answer for you Not to discourage you.!
The only thing I would agree IS TO FIND an apt for the voucher amount
1 bedrooms on Staten Island can go for $1200 to 1350/1400 depending on whats included

Sorry I don't have anything ( Thanks to all Veterans out here!!!)You just need an agent ( if you choose ) who knows about Section 8 vouchers It is a smoother process than regular Section 8 ( You have your own dept.) personnel is a lot more receptive to any questions needed to be answered to realtors or landlords Good Luck

Sorry for your 3 yr. ordeal and as a retired realtor, I know its difficult. Unfortunately, when it comes to Secxtion 8, HRA rental assistance or any other government assisted program, landlords need to meet requirements for these programs and because of the hassles + any expenses the landlords need to pay means most landlords don't want to bother with it. Its much easier for landlords to have regular renters pay the full rent than to go thru any hassles with government programs. To make matters worse, these government programs only pay about 75% of the regular rent & they tell landlords that they have to accept that rent and cannot charge people like you for the extra 25%. So this means landlords will lose 25% rent every month & of course this is unfair to the landlords.

Your best bet is to get on a waiting list for city owned housing or go to the Housing Authority and ask them what landlords are doing HRA acceptance.

This is why its so important if you have a job, to save 10% of your paycheck every week & put it into a savings account or retirement account. If it means cutting expenses on other stuff, its worth it. If you had savings, you wouldn't be in this situation.

It really depends on the needs of the people getting the security system. I know there is quite a range of options available when it comes to security systems. I suggest reading reviews of a few different security companies and getting it narrowed down to one you'd like to talk to. The security company will be able to give you a run down of what security options might be good for you and your situation. ... more

Nicholas Haze answered:
All landlords ask for a security deposit to ensure that the apartment will be yours. If you move in your deposit goes towards any damages if you break lease & suddenly disappear. Most people use the security deposit towards their last month rent before they move out which in the eyes of 98% of the landlords of NY is unprofessional. What some landlords do is they ask for a small deposit upfront if there currently showing the place This small deposit is to hold the landlord for the days hes not showing the place in case you come back 3days later & say I decided im not going to take the place.

If you do decide to take the place you just have to pay the difference.

But don't forget at the end when you decide to move out you get your security deposit back.

Don Tepper answered:
Sometimes people will rent out rooms in their homes. (Or the basement of a home.) The listing is put in the MLS, so it's correctly indicating that only one bedroom comes with the transaction. But the listing also correctly indicates that it's in a single-family home.

Ask your Realtor to determine what the situation is.

Hope that helps.
