I live in one. They're very nice but strict. I have monthly inspections and if it isn't spotless I get a violation. I've already got 1 because I had just swept and didn't clean up the dirt, the violation stated my whole apartment was dirty which it was not. My lease is also about 24 pages long.

I do.It's not public housing or section 8, but they are funded through them. The company that I rent from aren't strict at all.

I used to live in a section 8 apartments. The rules are generally the same as any assistance or apartment buildings. No drugs, no people in the household that aren't on the lease, must report all income. Some have long waiting lists. What do you mean by lenient?

The ones I lived in (and this was '01-'02) had a sliding scale which HUD does too. There's a maximum, but whatever falls below that determines what you pay in rent. I don't think they are lenient if you are above the maximum just like Food Stamps or Medicaid wouldn't be.

I live in one. They have rules just like any other apartment but I don't think they are really strict at all! People are not allowed to have pets here but almost everyone does! LOL.

I live here for free, just have to pay my electric bill and 45 dollars a month towards my security deposit. Plus they GIVE me 30 dollars a month. =)

Oh and I am not on Section 8 yet, this is just low income housing, they base it off 30 percent of your income or something?
