I am wondering if a potential landlord is required to notify all future tenants that they offer section 8?

You'll need to clarify this a bit. Do you mean:
1. Does a landlord need to notify people who are filling out an application at a complex and are not using a Section 8 voucher that there are Section 8 apartments at that complex? or
2. If someone with a Section 8 voucher asks if the complex accepts Section 8 vouchers does the landlord have to let them know?

Yes, does a landlord need to notify people who are filling out an application at a complex and not using a Section 8 voucher that there are Section 8 apartments in the complex. This might have altered my decision to rent at the complex.

No requirement. I can guess that you are in a complex that is starting to go downhill. I've been there. Once those complexes get past the critical mass of section 8 residents, there is no stopping it. The paying renters slowly bail out, forcing the management company to fill the vacancies with more section 8.

(I'm not against the section 8 concept, which has been proven effective. But, the concept fails everybody when the percentage gets too high.)

Downhill is an understatement and even though my lease is not up until July I started looking last Sept. At any rate this answered my question. Thanks a bunch!
