Irvine, CA ApartmentsCommunity ForumI am a landlord in Irvine
I am a landlord in Irvine. I would like to offer my units to folks looking for either section 8 or affordable housing. How do I go about getting this setup with the city and or state? I recently purchased these properties, so accepting the vouchers from renters is new to me.
Hello Lord of the Land, I have lived in Irvine for 16 years now, I have had a section 8 voucher for 24 years. I have leased two condos from private oweres in Irvine, the paperwork is not difficult at all. Youdont have to go to the city. You can go to the OCHA, in Santa Ana and they have a landlord/owner handbook, it has the required forms inside. THE FORMS ARE VERY SIMPLE. I have raised all three daughters here myself and i am so blessed to say they are all sucessful, intelligent, beautiful women. I believe it is due to the opportunity I was given to live and raise them in Irvine. I am now sending my last child off to San Diego State University. I need to move to a 1 bedroom, I have a small very well behaved 8 year old terrier/chi mix. I would like to move in on October 1, 2016. If you have anything available I would very much appreciate it. if not, I understand and if you still need information on how section 8 vouchers work I'd be happy to help. Jennifer 949-566-7309
To be able to offer your housing to Section 8 recipients and become their landlord, you normally have to fill out a form at City Hall and wait for it to be approved. Some cities have these forms online, but I can't find any Section 8 info on Irvine's site. Sometimes these requests have to go through the city's housing authority... I would recommend going to the City Hall in person. You will definitely be able to find someone that can help you out.
Orange County Housing Authority. I reside in Irvine but my voucher was issued by Anaheim Housing Authority. It was accepted in Irvine because the city of Irvine is in Orange County. I've included the link to the owners section of the housing authority.
Follow the link below & scroll down to the "Operational Documents" section. Click on the "2016 Payment Standards" file to see the maximum amount that section 8 pays for bedroom sizes. Irvine is one of many cities that has "Restricted Payment Standards" which means it's a high pay area.
Hope this helps. Here's the link.
