Am I required to make my property available to Section 8?

No, and frankly we don't recommend it.  While I am a strong believer in giving people a hand up that need assistance, Section 8 is not a great deal for homeowners.  During the rental process of qualifying a Section 8 tenant, the home must be inspected before it the lease can commence. It can take up to two weeks to get a property inspected. Subsequently if there are ANY repair items, the property must be re-inspected, taking another 3-7 days.  It is very easy to lose nearly a month’s worth of rent before you start collecting your check from the section 8 program.  Then, every year, the property is required to be re-inspected by Section 8, and they can require you as the homeowner to fix things the tenant broke or risk losing the funding.  While I believe all owners want to keep their homes maintained, Section 8 makes it much harder to keep the tenants responsible for any damages they cause.
