Sick of Owner's "NOT ACCEPTING SECTION 8"
This petition had 45 supporters
Many (if not all owners) are adding this to the rental listings-"Section 8 is not being accepted" at almost every rental unit-EVERYWHERE! If you look up houses for rent-most say "section 8 not accepted". or "sorry no section 8".-before they even describe the house amenities.... This should be considered discrimination- the same way as-race, sexual origin, is looked at as "illegal", owners SHOULD not be able to "DENY" renting to "section 8" tenants. Its not fair!!! There are many ways to screen potential tenants before renting units out. with or without a section 8 voucher. . A person with a section 8 voucher isn't automatically a bad renter or tenant, someone with out a voucher can be a bad renter. sign this petition, be heard!! Nothing can or will change if we don't try!!
I know that some of the housing authority's can take longer to get the tenant in the unit..SHRA being one of those...this is also a concern with an owner.due to (obviously) having to wait for money from this also needs to be addressed...
