How can I get a landlord to accept my section 8 voucher?
I think it means if the landlord accepts one person's voucher, they have to accept everyone's voucher. If property owner does not participate in the Sec 8 program officially with your Housing Authority, he cannot take your voucher because he would not get paid. Of course, no landlord has to accept Sec. 8 in the first place. When I applied, I was told that full time students could not get vouchers.

There's nothing you can do. First, no landlord is required to apply to get approved for the HUD Sec 8 program. Second, no landlord can accept HUD vouchers until they apply for HUD approval and can then accept vouchers. This LL does not have HUD approval and cannot accept HUD vouchers. LLs who accept HUD Sec 8 vouchers must state in their ads "Sec 8 ok" or similar wording. If that is not in the LL's ad for a vacancy, then that LL is not approved for HUD and does not (and cannot) accept Sec 8. If you want to use your voucher, you must look for rental ads which state "Sec 8 ok."

You can't. If the apartment is that perfect, it looks like you may have to pay for it yourself or look for another one that accepts Section 8. People who own properties do not have to accept Section 8 vouchers. It is up to them.

No, if they do not take it there is no way to force them. No landlord in the US is legally required to accept Section 8. They have every right to refuse.

Don't blame your landlord for not accepting you, the government makes it very difficult for landlords when it comes to sec. 8. Too much paperwork and too many rules.
