We recently had a prospective tenant come through who receives a housing voucher from MBQ. She has not submitted an application yet, but we weren't familiar with this program and I'm wondering if anyone on here has experience with it.

Thanks

Here's some info about the program on the Baltimore Housing Authority's website: Welcome to Baltimore Housing

And here's some more info from the website of the Metropolitan Baltimore Quadel (MBQ): Metropolitan Baltimore Quadel > Development Opportunities > Program Overview

It's similar to the section 8 program IIRC.

I would recommend against it.

Here's why:

As illiterate sounding as that sentence is, it is nonetheless packed full of meaning.

Is it the voucher holder's home? No, it is a borrowed residence, but they will think of it as "theirs", and will run roughshod with it. Remember they are "entitled" to something for nothing, and the rest of us who were responsible are forced to pay for it. Don't be that landlord.

If there are any problems with the tenant it will take an act of the courts to remove such a problem. Is the extra money the government siphons away from taxpayers to pad these types of programs so that voucher recipients receive money above and beyond market rent worth it? No landlord would accept a voucher were it not for the above-market rate being paid.

Damage? Destruction? Drug-Use? The moving in of boyfriends, family members, friends, etc. not on the lease? Domestic violence, cops always being at the property... Is any of that worth it?

I totally disagree with the statement you made . Are you speaking about a previous experience you had ? what do you mean they are entitled to something for nothing ? I work 40 hrs a week and i'm a current voucher holder and pay 769.83 a month with my hard earned money . Yes thats a discounted price and I am blessed to have it for my daughter and I. Not everyone who holds a voucher does,damage , destruction,drug use , moves their bf or family members in , domestic violence , or has cops always coming to the property .... Idk what you've been through but you really shouldnt try to mess it up for anyone with a voucher with such nonsense.
