Yeah, did that and all... VASH does nothing (They cordinate between every one) the Voucher I recieved is for $1250.00 and my part (stated on the Voucher) is about $335.00. The voucher is good for 120 days and can be extended another 120 days. This voucher specifies a 1 bedroom dwelling. I can go for a no bedroom. Also according to the Housing Authority on 2600 Wilshire (LA) I can not rent a room. It can be an apartment, town house or house, that sort of thing. According to the worker (HUD) and VASH they do not help with deposit or wave the credit check (They told me that was between the landlord and my self).
VASH tells me that I am not on Section 8, they say tell the landlord that I am on VASH-HUD or HUD-VASH (landlords when told this say, I am on HUD or SECTION 8... The VOUCHER is HUD (SECTION 8). Thus you must locate a place with no more than the amount of the voucher and that works with section 8, period. Further according to the HUD worker, if you rent a place for more than the amount of the voucher, the cost of rent minus the amount of the voucher is for YOU to pay.
Let's get some thing going here... email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (if no answer leave a message) 818-917-3589 try to get others on this system involved and let's work together to set up a data base and help each other in searching. I use a app on Windows (Laptop) called infoangel (it is from angle writer people (search for angel writer), it is a very good database app. Sorry if this don't help but your not alone, HUD and VASH leave a lot out, both in reguards to what you do, what the voucher does and what they do.... more
You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

It is always best to try to work it out with your contractor, if that does not work. File a complaint with the Department of Consumer Affairs, the licensing agency that licenses contractors.
Small Claims is only up to $5,000.00
You file in the Civil Court in the county you live in. In Brooklyn it is at 141 Livingston St.

Hi David, with a 602 credit score you may have a hard time finding a bank to give you a loan and they will also charge you a very high interest rate which can cost you a lot of money over time. My suggestion would be to consult a credit repair company. They know how to get your credit score up quickly (some things they can do in 4 - 6 weeks, others take more like 6 months). One credit repair company that I have had buyers use in the past is http://www.solomonalgazi.com/index.php. His tips were successful in increasing my buyer's credit score so that she could qualify for a loan and receive a better interest rate on that loan. A great mortgage banker in Brooklyn for 203K & FHA loans is Leonard Murphy from Wells Fargo. His number is 718.780.9110 and email is email@example.com. Good luck!... more
Be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously, therefore visit with any licensed loan officer and see exactly what your budget/expenses can be expected. Keep in mind when purchasing co-ops, boards do have their own financial qualifications that must be met in order to be approved, and each building is different.... more
I would suggest start your search working on line to find the neighborhood with the assets and ammenities that you want close at hand in combination to your budget requirements and then finding an agent that specializes in that neighborhood to help you find the right apartment.
An agent that specializes in a particular neighborhood, will know all the buildings and the landlords and will be able to locate that special needs apartment.
