RE your sec 8 tennat sabotaging the toilet.
It’s probably too late to help you now, but for future reference, HUD has a special form you can file specifically to handle unpaid rent and damages. Its fom HUD-52671-A "Section 8 Special Claims for Unpaid Rent/Damages. I have it in .PDF format and can send it if you e-mail me.
Any tenat can trash your place, section 8 or not. I know someone who had an eviction party and painted the whole place flat black.)You have to screen carefully, whatever their source of income.
(I just signed another sec 8 contract this morning. I love-em.)
