Too many bad experiences. This doesn't mean that all Section 8 renters are bad, but enough are so the landlord does not want to take a chance.

I live in Cali now but plan on moving to Eugene next year. I noticed on craigslist a lot of vacant listings don't accept section 8. I don't have it but I think its a great program that people take advantage of. They get in properties and completely ruin them so landlords basically stop accepting it. It sucks for those like you who probably know how to act and treat your houses. You just have to look around. GOOD LUCK!

Yes, exactly. While you can't just say all section 8 renters are bad. I think it's ok to say that there's been enough bad experiences to not allow section 8 renters. People just don't want their properties ruined, despite getting paid if it is.
I've seen places that do accept it. Look in the Register-Guard. You'll find some places.

acctualy that is a crock of **** that every one wants you to belive that they move into places and tear houses up, in all actuality if you tear a house up and dont pay for the damage before you move you lose your section 8, if you dont pay your rent you lose your section 8. Ive been on Section 8 for 9 years now and never met a single person on it that has ever not payed there rent on time nor torn a unit up. The real reason no one wants to take section 8 is the land owners have to abide by state law and regulations and incordances with the housing laws which means they have to take the legal actions to clean and repare things that are wrong with there units that they dont want to fix and they dont tell unexpecting renter that does not have the knowledge to look for these things things that can make our children sick most of the houses around hear are cover in paint chips that have lead in them, stuff like that. If I owned a house I would want to know the stuff thats wrong with my house to keep up on it so it doesnt turn in to a pile of crap. So the next time you walk around thinking that people on Section 8 tear there rentals up you need to get your facts right go down to the housing unit and ask them how many have actually torn there units up or not payed there rent not to many its just easier for every one to say we dont rent to section 8 because instead of telling the truth. In all actuality its discrimenation and they should man up and say they just dont wanna have to do all the extra paper work or most of our units dont meet the standards that section 8 has.

WOW I don't think anyone meant to offend you. I live in Cali so I am going by what I know and from what I've seen and heard. I'm sure the landlords are being lazy and not wanting to keep up with state laws and regulations as well. Ive met quite a few people on section 8 out here and they are not living in the best of places because they also complained that no one would accept section 8. I don't "walk around thinking people on section 8 tear up rentals", but in actuality there are some people who do ruin places. And it only takes 1 tenant to mess up for a landlord to say they aren't accepting section 8.
I just its something you just have to deal with or let the section 8 go.
