    If you aren’t very experienced in picking tenants I would recommend that you avoid section 8 at all costs.

    But if you are a glutton for punishment you have to find a voucher holder and then schedule an inspection from section 8. That is about all there is to it. They will restrict the amount of rent you can charge.

    Why would you choose to rent to someone on Section 8 ? If you are interested in doing it, you have to speak to someone at your Housing Authority in the city or county where you are. There would be an annual inspection to make sure you are complying with maintenance and codes. The tenant will pay the small portion of the rent to you directly, with most of it being paid by the county. Someone who has a voucher can rent only the size indicated on their voucher and that means if the house is 3-bedroom you will get a family with children only.
