rid of section 8 tenant (by carl [MA]) Posted on: Feb 8, 2019 4:41 AM
Message:

I'd like to get rid of a section 8 tenant. The sect 8 lease is running out this month. Another LL has mentioned that I still have to give her 60 days notice. I thought after that I could just state that I wanted to get the unit back,..that is no reason listed that she could fight about.

The LL said that this doesn't apply to sect 8 people and that she can fight removal which I'm pretty sure she would. Does anyone know the best way to do this? Is it different in the People's Republic of Ma? Do states have different rule?

You need to read the contract that you signed with the PHA when you first agreed to take this tenant. Most likely it requires you to give a 60 days notice to either change the terms or to cancel the contract.

I suggest that you confirm the 60 day notice requirement then immediately issue a notice of non renewal to both the tenant & their PHA. If you do this before the first of March then their rental agreement will be terminated as of April 30, 2019. If either the tenant or the PHA asks why just say you have other plans for the unit.

I doubt that the PHA will fight this however be aware that they will most likely stop payments after April's payment. If the tenant does not properly vacate & return the unit to you by April 30 be prepared to take them to court. FYI the court can & most likely will give them additional time to find a place so it's important to start this process as soon as you legally can. Also remember that if either the tenant or the PHA give you any money towards May's rent that you are allowed to accept it without jeopardizing their removal. You just need to issue both the tenant & the PHA a receipt stating the monies are being accepted for "Use and Occupancy Only".

It appears from your questions that you have never terminated a subsidized tenancy. If that is the case I strongly suggest you consider consulting with an attorney who has experience with S8 terminations & evictions.

You need to read the hud agreements you signed and follow those. Most likely it late in the game to be starting unless you are prepared to loose a months rent as they stay there with no hud payment while they look for another place. The valued reasons are listen in my signed agreement ive been reading it knowing im not renewing one coming up in June. --99.203.xx.x

Iím not sure if all HUD contracts are the same, but mine states I can not renew a lease for 3 reasons: renovation of the unit, need it for a family member, and I think moving in myself (I would have to go get it and read it to verify). I still had to give proper notice, but I thought that was 30 days. Read your contract, it is all spelled out. My resident didnít move, so I had to evict. --24.61.xxx.xx

Still Learning, my contract reads the same. So i'm wondering if I use any of those three, to get this one out, would the house be able to re entry the program with advertising for a new tenant, or would they make it difficult, or offer me lower amount of rent, or be a pain in my side ??? True is this tenant is not a good fit for my business model, she may be on medicine that she randomly take, but I can not go to the house alone any more, or I am not going there without a witness, as she stompped her feet and had a little chant, about being the race she is, the color she is, the single mother, the world is not fair. I headed to my car to get away from her. Next came the M word, and all sorts of other request. She is a time bomb and I don't wish to walk thru that mind-field. --184.206.xxx.xxx

Picky Question.

I know MA recognizes a 30 Day Notice to Quit, but do you:

1. Change the form to a 60 Day Notice to Quit

or

2. Do you simply put a Move Out date on that 30 Day form that is 60 Days into the future --73.16.xxx.x

An xx Day Notice to Quit must include a "full rental period". ie, a full CALENDAR month.

That is, if you issue an xx Day Notice to quit today, 2/8/19, the xx day clock doesn't start ticking until 3/1/2019. --73.16.xxx.x

Plenty, if you end the contract, renovate and readvertise, yes you could still be part of the program. If you say family is moving in and then family backs out and put it right back on the market, Iím guessing they wouldnít be happy, but I donít know how they would prove it. --24.61.xxx.xx

My attorney (also a RE investor) advised a verbiage to the standard 30 day notice "This Notice is given for the purpose of terminating your tenancy, because this unit is

renting for higher market rent."

I filed eviction on one who didn't move by end of January. Most others would just move right away in fear of losing their vouchers. This one is a drunkard and couldn't tell day from night.. We will see how it pans out. --71.232.xxx.xxx
