Keep on knocking on doors and work with a Realtor who can assist you. A landlord and/or Realtor cannot deny you based solely on the Sec 8 Voucher.

Feel free to contact me should you need any assistance. ... more

Yes. The person that pays for the report owns it (unless they sign some crazy waiver otherwise). The listing agent is not allowed to send it to the selling agent unless the applicant instructs the listing agent to do so. That is generally where a problem pops up.

Dear Victoria,

I am sure a broker or leasing agent the specializes in section 8 will respond. You can also check on craigslist. Make sure you put the bachelorhood you are considering moving to and section 8 or Sec 8 in the search field.

Best of luck.

Dear Renter,

It is not law that a tenant cannot be evicted over winter. Judges are reluctant and avoid evicting tenants during winter months. A landlord will have to present a really strong case for a winter evictions.

Best of luck!

Carole Cooper answered:
It is not as prevalent in some neighborhoods because of the rental limits placed on Section VIII rentals. There are many buildings in all neighborhoods that have a portion of their units dedicated to subsidized housing. Many years ago the land on the south side of Chicago was cheap and easy for the government to purchase when subsidized housing was built back in the 50's and 60's. Today you can find Section VIII properties in Presidential Towers, some buildings on Harbor Drive to name a couple, because developers received tax rebates if they allocated some of their units to subsidized housing.

Lisa,

The best thing is to inspect the apartment before you move in for any signs of rodents. Also, if you call then "ground squirrels", then it doesn't sound as bad.

Best regards,

Dear Renter,

As brokers we can only refer you to websites such as http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/il/chicago/crime/ . Another way is for you to go to the neighborhood at different times of the day and gauge for yourself.

Best of luck,
