hi iam 55yrs old with a disability i need 2 bdrms i aso have a section 8 voucher do you accept my voucher thank you b bryant
It is not the agents decision not to accept vouchers It is the owners of the property. Also the section 8 program required the property to be enrolled into the program and pass inspections therefore you can decline section 8 due to the requirments of the program. This is not a discrimination issue its a issue of participating in the program or not. There is no law that requires anybody to perticipate.

I have won law suits and been given monetary payouts because it is illegal to decline a tenant because they have section 8 all housing must take into consideration your credit and income only and your voucher is deemed income any one that does not accept housing vouchers can be sued and the laws against this are getting stricter because people are discriminating more and more.. i will not be surprised if someone starts a class action suit against the real estate agents who support this through industry secrets of the trade wink wink
We do not accept any voucher assistance programs at this time. Thank you for your interest.
Valerie, there are also vouchers for a section 8 home loan. Speak with housing authority to see if you qualify and then ask if they know of a realtor familar with the process that they could refer you to assist you. If they don't know of one call some of the local real estate franchises and ask to speak to their relocation director. They generally will have a list of realtors they can refer you to.
Valerie, there are section 8 homes. You should get in contact with the housing authority to begin checking for section 8 homes. Good luck.
