The bill paying part of Section 8 is fine. However, as a group, Section 8 tenants have more repairs than most others. Reasons vary; more kids, less money to repair or maintain things, a tendency to not rock-the-boat by calling the landlord, thereby allowing a small repair to grow much larger. This isn’t a condemnation of all Section 8 tenants, just a fact of rental life.
Section 8 no longer pays to repair your property if it gets trashed.
