In What You Must Know BEFORE Becoming a Greedy Landlord I included this paragraph regarding Section 8 housing:
“On the surface, the main disadvantage I see is that you’ll have to deal with government bureaucracy to receive and maintain approval. The PHA in your area will inspect your property to make sure it complies with HUD’s Housing Quality Standards (HQS). And they must inspect it at least annually.”
Some landlords in the Columbus area see that as a disadvantage, too ... so much so that they’ve pulled out of the program.
