FUTURE SECTION 8 LANDLORDS
The VHA partners closely with local private landlords in serving low-income families, elderly people, and people with disabilities. Particularly; through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, local landlords play an integral role in the VHA's mission.
FRAUD ALERT: It has come to our attention that someone is attempting to fraudulently obtain credit card information from our landlords. Although the caller ID appears to be our main phone number, VHA records show no calls were made from our offices. VHA staff will never ask you for credit card information over the phone. You should refuse to provide any personal financial information to someone claiming to call you from the VHA. Please contact Sasha Nichelson, Program Director, at 360-993-9541 if you have questions about a suspicious request for information.

Landlord Information Packet
You can find information for landlords here.
A Section 8 landlord uses the lease of their choice. The lease must not conflict with the Tenancy Addendum which becomes a part of the lease. The landlord also enters into a HAP Contract with the Housing Authority. Sample documents are below.
The Housing Authority has partnered with www.Gosection8.com , which provides an enhanced program to list rental properties on line. Listings are available to potential Housing Choice Voucher tenants seeking apartment units, duplexes, single-family homes or townhomes in the private market. If you have any questions regarding registering, creating or viewing property listings, please contact the GoSection8 toll free help line at 1-866-466-7328.
It is recommended that Landlords add photos to their listing for better advertising and faster lease up!
Effective March 1, 2012 all new HAP contracts will be paid through electronic payments. To download the Direct Deposit form, click here.
