Information on Becoming a Landlord
Becoming a landlord requires not only financial resources but also managerial talent and is not a profession to be entered into lightly. When looking into becoming a landlord there is a great deal to consider and do, including knowing local rental laws, determining realistic rents, drafting leases, covering costs and managing tenants.
For information on becoming a landlord in your area, contact your local government.
For information on the rights and responsibilities of landlords, visit the Office of the Minnesota Attorney General.
Section 8 Information for Landlords
The role of the landlord in the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program is to provide decent, safe, sanitary housing to a tenant at a reasonable rent. The unit must pass the program’s housing quality standards and be maintained as long as the owner receives housing assistance payments. The landlord is also expected to provide the services agreed to as part of the lease.
For more information on the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program visit the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
