If you have rental property, the best way to survive is to have only carefully selected section 8 tenants. The voluminous amount of procedural requirements and statutes that exists only perpetuates slovenliness and does NOTHING to protect property owners. When you are forced
to evict someone for not paying rent, the bench officers actually suggest you pay the tenants just to get them out. Ridiculous. The government has gone waaaaaay too far. I’m so thankful we just sold our commercial property.
