Section 8 thanks, but no thanks - Posted by Chenel_MD

I have them next door. I was going to put some Section 8 tenants in this house when we move. However, my tenants next door have made me reconsider.
They don’t care anything about the property they are in. The house next door is an atrocious mess. They got evicted in November and somehow ended up rerenting the same house. So all the crap that was thrown in the street is literally in their driveway and their backyard.
We are talking mattresses, chairs, tables, toys, you name it and it is out there. They let their 5 kids run wild throughout the neighborhood at all times of the day and night. And on Saturday, one of their kids broke my dining room window.
I have called the county code enforcement agency, the police and Section 8 officials. This is a nice neighborhood where the people take pride in their properties and the appearances of their houses.
I can’t even imagine what the inside must look like.
I don’t mean to stereotype, but if this is Section 8, regardless of above market rents, thanks but no thanks.
