  • I saw your other question yesterday, and I did feel for you, but decided to stay out of the drama, but today....I just feel like saying my peace! LOL

    This is exactly what the system is there for, why would anyone think you would be cheating the system. This system is there for a reason, and I know lots of people misuse it and that's why everyone has this attitude now. You do deserve section 8. I think the first thing you need to do is talk to your landlord and make sure he is willing to accept section 8, then after you are approved for it they will work with your landlord to get the house certified. I'm not sure of the amount of rent section 8 will pay in your area, but they do have a limit. I wish you the best of luck and hope you can get through this process quickly.

  • Well i do know for the state that i live in if you rent a house/apt/townhouse if the landlord and the state works together and everything is up to date with state standards then the state will appove it and you are all set. Have you spoke with the landlord? I would speak with them and the talk with the state. Do you have like a case worker that can help you with the needs that you need. I would call your insurance company and see if there is someone that can do that for you. I wish you the best and i really hope that you can get your home appoved. I know that it would be really hard for you to try and find another home that would work for you and your medical issues. Pls keep me posted on what happens for you and your child. If you choose to.

  • Please don't let other people get to you... this is a personal matter and your choice if you don't qualify they won't give it to you. In some states they may assist your landlord in getting your home up to par so it can be approved. I would talk to my landlord first. GL to you.
