do apartments legally have to announce they rent to section 8 or is it confidential? #noclassist but I would like to know before I sign the lease. I don't want to live in a complex that does

wow

sorry to bust your bubble

But even new luxury buildings have to offer some low cost units in order to get the subsidies they depend on to build (in major cities)

If you really want to keep away from those beneath you, you might have to buy a house in an upscale neighborhood

Until then you just may encounter the poor

Just ask, but honestly I've seen neighborhoods that accept it and you would never guess. Why does it bother you?

rickyrose, don't do it like that smh

I don't mind poor people....working poor people

but when I go to work and leave the house and you sitting on the stoop chillin? that's an issue

if my sh*t comes up missing and 36 of yall outside but nobody saw anything? that's an issue

there is a difference in ppl who work for their keep because they'll value and respect it vs people who pay $35 in rent, they're just looking for a place to "stay at".


the same people that you're defending will think nothing of running up in your house and stealing everything that you worked hard for them so don't cry for them argentina, the truth is I never want to live around them folks again

Section 8 does not equal no job.

But I do see the issue with living in say, straight up public housing.

section 8 apts might as well be public housing if you get too many of them. sh*t they'll turn that sh*t into the hood and next thing you know they featured your neighborhood on first 48

I wanted to say that you can tell...but I moved into a nice, safe, non section 8 community and my neighbor was shot in the face and there was a drug raid all within 2 mths of moving in.  Separate incidents.  I stuck it out, must've been a fluke bc nothing else has happened.

My friend in real estate says he still pays attn to the cars parked on the street and parking lot to help determine value.

okay!!! these chicks acting like they don't know!!

prolly some of the same chicks talking about "ratchets" in other threads are acting brand new in this one..really acting like a complex that's 65% section 8 is going to have the same standard of livingwhere most people pay full price

they always want to cape from a distance


Posted By: ms_wonderland
Date Posted: Jul 01 2014 at 6:24pm
if a building 's 65% section 8 it's probably sh*tty and obvious so the rent is probably cheap any way, which means your price range should increase...how much is the rent?  Add 300 and look elsewhere.

maybe you can get someone else to ask if the building accepts it.  or maybe you can pretend like you are someone else.  i mean that way if the answer is no they won't think you yourself are on section 8.

most people wouldn't and shouldn't live in section 8 apartments if they could avoid it, so blackcyna shouldn't come off bad here. she just has a natural crassness that is taken the wrong way.

just call the apartment and ask if they accept section 8 is all. then scratch it off your list if they do.

Yes they refuse all section 8 because of a history of having their apartments damaged to the point of costing thousands of dollars worth of repairs. This didn't happen once or twice. It happened several times. I have stories for days.

Their current tenants (referring to my parents who are landlords) are of different races, but non section 8.

Section 8 people gotta live somewhere. I had a co-worker that lived on 34th street parkave. She was the receptionist there. In my mind im like how the fugg she get to afford living on 34th street. So I goes to ask her and she said its a section 8 apt. I was like no effing way. I told her she was lying. She should me her rent stub for payment and that bish stated $87 a DAGGONE MONTH. My mouth is still open just typing this. THE BUILDING HAD A DOORMAN AND ALL.

I didn't make it past the living room/kitchen area. it was disgusting. I went home to use the bathroom

I have no idea about section 8, who uses it when or how

But we did research on the area before we bought it so it didn't matter who's using section 8 or not

you can screen section 8 tenants as you would any other tenant no?

Check credit, references, background checks right?

It's just funny how there's nothing wrong with discriminating against ppl on section 8 but if we replace that word with ghetto black ppl it would be a problem.  Telling them to have one less baby is bad but wanting nothing to do with them and openly discriminating is cool, I'm just confused.  Section 8 is a program with all types of ppl on it...never been on it but I should've gotten on that wait list yrs ago as an unemployed student(I heard it takes YEARS on the list, probably priority goes to certain types of situations) so I could potentially coast through graduate school with subsidized rent....

when people on section 8 are concentrated to one area, 9/10 sh*t pops off on a regular basis. i'd prefer to live in a house or a mixed income dwelling.

theres probably some section 8 housing you would avoid if you could help it. some arent bad, but if shes paying rent its her choice

Exactly @ noneyons if it's all section 8 there will be some issues(the owners and tenants alike) but when I was apt hunting I saw some pretty nice townhomes and other types of independently owned apts that accepted it.  But that's where checking things out for yourself come in.

do you think the section8 stereotypes are without merit?

Are any stereotypes without merit?  I've seen examples of every stereotype I've ever heard.  It doesn't stop us from looking beyond that when it stands to affect us.

Why not just call them? I havent read the whole thread so maybe you answered.

But my other advice is to see if it's listed on  gosection8.com , which is a site that assists people who have a section 8 voucher to find apartments/homes that are willing to accept it

I'm sure not all are listed though, so I suggest to call and ask .

"My auntie on section 8 so why ain't her credit straight? See you paying alladat which mean she ain't ever late"

Nothing to add,bye lol.

Bout to listen to Jeezy

I'm not being politically correct either...I'm not living in the hood again(oakland -_-) or any semblance of a hood and I criticize a lot of ratchet things...I'm just saying it's really not all stereotypical.

Correct, and section 8 automatically disqualifies registered sex offenders (including additional tenants) and anyone caught cooking meth in any form of public housing... sooo, that's a plus.

I don't think anyone is exaggerating but there's another side to it.  A lot of ppl on it are single working mothers.  Some people are just ratchets happy to have money for plasma tv's instead of forking over rent and let their convict boyfriends secretly live there.

section 8 needs to be revamped where able bodied people are only permitted to depend on the resource for a designated time. otherwise it becomes a crutch and many people don't see any incentive do better. imo.

Jam,

section 8 is a program for poverty/low income. You could be unemployed or the working poor.

low income will always be associated with crime, bad behavior and laziness. Warranted or not.

funny you made the distinction between working mothers and plain ratcheds. 

my sis was on section 8 for over 10 years. had it made. was working the whole time but she ended up losing it because my bad ass niece and nephews damaged several of the properties. now she's living in a studio paying full rent, still working and finally decided to go back to school so she can do better.

this happens period. I don't feel like the black women not on these programs live any better by numbers IMO. Section 8 is an easy label.

there are a lot of disabled people sitting on the waiting lists for section 8 because able bodied folk aint trying to give up their spot. a shame.


Posted By: Lite Brite

A lot of able bodied working people need section 8 too though.

Plus they have to pay 30% of their income towards the rent.. so they're not really living large


Posted By: noneyons
Date Posted: Jul 01 2014 at 9:41pm
absolutely. i agree. but just like the example i gave of sister, many able bodied folks on section 8 don't see any incentive to further their education (for example) so that they're no longer working part time minimum wage jobs and no longer need the crutch. i know damn sure i wouldn't. 

if a fire is lit under some asses, folks will do what they gotta do stop being dependent on the goverment.

my sis was employed with the same company part time for years because if she worked full time, she'd lose her benefits. nothing wrong with that in theory but she should have been taking online classes at least while she was working part time.
