Landlords never have a problem in taking working section 8 tenants because they know there rent will get paid. However, not to knock anyone a tenant that does not work with section 8 stays home all day and the landlords property gets ruined because they assume because you are on public assistance you are a low budget piece of crap. There is something called hardship and it happens everyday its a part of live we dont like it but it is what it is. There are very nice places in the north east bronx that accepts section 8. There are new construction homes that have 3 bedroom 2 bathroom and the rent is 1,600 a month. If you can pay rent from 1,500 to 2,000 a month then you look in too owning your own property. I came here for help and all I got was judged. Moderator cut: cut

I dont wanna go back and forth. I ask you not to assume. I told you anything you wanted to know about me ask me. So its not your fault you got wrong information but before you tried to judge me and my situation you should have asked me.

WRONG! LLs are NOT guaranteed rent on section 8..that is the biggest lie there is. Section 8 will suspend and cancel your payments for any number of reasons...including the tenants skipping their certification appts..which in my experince..happens ALL the time. Good luck getting them reinstated..and even more luck getting the back payments...you are dealing with gov't bureaucracy..fun!!

Stay away from Section 8 tenants!

I was with you until this. You ARE trying to beat the system, and you're scamming working-class people. You wouldn't qualify with both of your incomes.

The Westchester Income limit is even lower.

Since you're not claiming your husband, it's a family of 5, I'm assuming? Income limit of $30k.

This is the problem with the program. The section 8 program is inflating rents! Why would a landlord go throught the Section 8 bureaucracy if he could get $1,600 from a non-Section 8 tenant. Because he can't! The market rent for this apartment may only be $1,200.

And here is the other irony. The poor Section 8 tenant is living in a beautful brand new house, while the non-Section 8 tenant is living around the corner in some 50-year old dump! And what incentive does the Section 8 tenant to improve his/her life with a higher paying job and better career? None, because he/she will lose the Section 8 voucher, and have to move into the dump around the corner!

And Charlene, your blackness has nothing to do with this. You should report your husband's income and see if you still qualify. If you do, go for it. If you don't, pay the full rent like other honest people.

rubygreta...agreed 100%! However, you and I both know that she will not report his income...because she will no longer qualify and she has no interest in working AND paying her bills....bills that she can afford that is. Sorry you can't live in a 4 bedroom house...if you can only afford a small 2 bedroom..sorry....the rest of us have to make sacrifices too.

I have no sympathy, sorry. You don't need a subsidized 3BR apt.

I grew up in a family of 5. 1BR when we were younger. Parents slept in living room, us 3 kids in the 1BR. Didn't qualify for any type of assistance. Not even free lunch. Meanwhile kids who's parents owned big businesses in town got free lunch because parent's income was hidden.

You're scamming working class people by not reporting your husband's income. And you're both city employees. Wonderful.
