Jahlon, an agent will be able to pull a list of Section 8 rental listings for you. Remember, not all Section 8 properties are listed with an agent, so I would check and Craigslist as well. Keep in mind that there are scams on Craigslist, so be careful about giving anyone your personal information. If you need a rental agent, call Amanda Walker at 504-388-2666. ... more

Brooke, have you consider buying instead of renting? You may be able to convert your rental voucher into a voucher to help you buy a home. The program will gurantee your mortgage. Send me a message if you are interested in the details. Also if you are still looking for an apartment.

Good luck

I would have to check the MLS, but for that small period of time it will be hard. You may need to check with corporate rentals which are furnished but will be more expensive. You may check with New Orleans filming because there are listings for short terms leases minimum of 3 months. ... more

Yes and no.

Sorry about that!

The problem is that landlords generally have to go through a pretty rigorous approval process to be approved for Section 8. The house gets a thorough, very in-depth inspection, and I believe it has to be reinspected annually. In addition, there are limits to the amount paid to landlords through Section 8. In some areas of the country, it's pretty generous. In other areas, it's below market rent. I don't know what it is for New Orleans.

So, probably, if you found a property and the owner agreed--then the owner would have to go through that approval process. It's not as simple as him/her saying, "Sure, I'll take you."

If you have some time before you have to find a property, you could look into the process by which a landlord would have to be accepted. Then, when you find a prospective property, you could already have all the information ready for him/her. And make sure you explain the benefits of the owner accepting a Section 8 tenant. Your case worker may be able to help you with that.

Hope that helps.
