Matt that’s what I was curious about. What about income? Do we just leave that to the state to figure out?

Tony Leon Sec 8 or housing will figure out their income and you will get a contract that spells out how much the resident owes AND how much sec 8 will pay (they normally do not pay garages or pet rent or storage ( we normally generate one lease minus add on for housing) then another one with the add on (we only generate the 1st page only) because the resident has signed the rest

Tony Leon you do not do anything with income housing will figure it out-they have to provide housing with all sources of income-Tony-go onto your counties website for housing there is a zip code directory- It will show you how much rent for studio-5 bdrms. that sec 8 is will to cover-what is nice here in Chicago they must have 2 people per room-this stops the single mom of 1 from wanting a 3 bdrm just because she wants a guest room or office or move friends in 2 people can not rent anything larger than a 1 bdrm. housing is cracking down on abuse within the system

But they still have to qualify, most people on section 8 wont make 3 times the rent . So that will be your way around it.. some of them wont qualify credit wise either .. I used to take section 8 at 1 of my properties

But I though they did not have to qualify income-wise. I figured that the income part of it would be left with the state?
