I live out of state and NYC court has appointed me administrator of an estate. The former owner, now deceased, owned rental property in the Bronx & another family member with power of attorney was collecting/receiving rent payments from Section 8. That person is uncooperative & will not talk to me or give me any information, but claims through his attorney that a Section 8 tenant has not been paying rent. I'm positive that Section 8 still sends a monthly check to this person... who is no longer authorized to receive same. Who can I notify at Section 8 office to make necesary change so that I can receive the rent payment?

I have tried calling NYCHA/Section 8, but have been given the run-around. I even found a Landlord change of address form online, but while I have the property address and possibly the section 8 tenant's name, I lack the vendor numbers they request. In the meantime, an unauthorized person is receiving rent payments and pocketing the money and they don't seem at all concerned. I have been unable to break through the wall of bureaucracy to get them to change the payee.

Have any NYC landlords been through this? I could sure use some help. Thanks.
