You can NOT rent to family members or immediate relatives with Section 8. So the rest of this post is purely for your informational purposes. Renting to Section 8 families in my opinion is a 50/50 bet. You are assisting a family of lower income and helping them live a more comfortable secure life. The majority of your rent is secured and solid, and comes from your local housing authority. But the space being rented must meet certain guidelines (screens in all windows that open, proper lighting and / or electrical fixtures in each room, fire/smoke and CO2 detectors throughout, etc...); and other specifications and guidelines on amount of rent allowed etc. There is alot to learn about renting to Section 8 vouchers; and as with renting to anyone, low income or not, people who do not own the space they live in are far less likely to maintain the space properly.
