I hate to say it but I am renting to a Section 8 tenant. The community has drastically changed since I moved there.

It's a way to pay the house not and move into a community that has not been taken over by trash.

What are the income and payment restrictions on section 8 housing and section 8 tenants? I haven't seen them in all of the subdivisions and imagine that not all would qualify for parts, such as Overlook, South Harbour, and Fairway Seven.

Not sure about income restrictions. Section 8 in GA pays depending on the amount of people on the voucher. A four bedroom voucher is around 1200 a month and a three bedroom voucher is 875. You could reasonably ask for $1600 or 1700 a month. The family has to pay the difference. Of course it is safer to try to stay within the limits of the voucher so you dont have to worry about being paid.

Section 8 people should not be allowed to live in better housing than the taxpayers who pay their rent. they should be given apartments and not be allowed to live in 100,000 homes.. Heck I have worked all my life and when I fell on hard times, I had to move in with my other family members because didn't want to mooch off others. Section 8 should not pay more than $300 per month towards anybody's rent if that much. If you can't afford to buy the house on your salary, you should be allowed to live there at tax payer expense.

Is this a joke? Are you serious? They're really turning Mirror Lake into a section 8 area? I've seen section destroy neighborhoods. This is ridiculous. I'm in the process of purchasing a home and I ran across several hundred homes in the carroll county and douglas county area that were foreclosures that would be perfect for section 8 people. I can't believe I have to pay taxes to help lazy people using that stupid program.

The fact that the government is willing to give $1200/month vouchers for a 4 BDRM house says it all right there. Temporary assistance should be just that, temporary. We live in a society in which folks would rather live off of the government so that they have cash freed up for purchasing cigarettes. Sad.

The only thing that sucks about all this is the fact that there are people that really need this program and several other programs to help them through hard times but you have hundreds(if not thousands) taking advantage of free money that they don't have to work for. Sad indeed.

Want a sure fire way to get them out? REPORT them! Nine times out of ten, at least, they are gaming the system. If they have a four or five bedroom house but you only see one kid in there with two adults, report it. if you see a ton of cars out front that only leave half the time, report it-that means they're renting out to another party and pocketing the money whole OUR tax dollars go to pay for their lazy butts.GAMING! If they have a dog. If they don't mow the lawn, if they make noise or if the house falls into disrepair, call your new slumlord ex neighbor and tell him you will report his "renters" if something is not done in seven days. Put it inw riting (check tax records for the slumlord's new residence or call the HUD offices)and if the slumlord doesn't do anything to improve his old house and your neighborhood, report his tenants. make their stay as hard as possible. Telling the section 8 scum bags to do something will do nothing at all. Hit the slumlords and the HUD officials. It's a lot easier when a landlord rents to a nice, clean, law abiding family. And they ARE out there, lots of them.

I agree with Nita. Save certain apartments only for the section 8 folks. It is an absolute shame to see ghetto trash filth able to rent in a nice neighborhood, when hard working middle class Americans can't get into homes like that. When they move into these nicer neighborhoods your property values drop, which is even worse in this economy. We had section 8 folks live next door to us in our hold house. OMG! They were loud, did drugs all of the time, had mean dogs running loose, the yard looked like crap and I was constantly awakened in the middle of the night with their blaring bass.
