Landlord Information

Landlord participation is essential in order to utilize housing vouchers. The vouchers are a guarantee that the Housing Authority of the County of Butte will be paying you a portion of the family's monthly rent.

Landlords screen and select Section 8 Participating families as they would any other tenant, keeping in mind that the family is low-income and will pay only a portion of the rent, with the Housing Authority paying the balance. Landlords may use their own rental agreement and set the term of the lease to conform with other leases in the locality. Minimal paperwork is required to participate in the Section 8 Program. The Housing Authority conducts an inspection to satisfy basic health and safety requirements and for use by the landlord as a management tool.

We hope you will consider participating in the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program and help ease the housing crisis faced by many families in Butte County.

Please contact our staff at our office if you would like to list your vacant property for referrals from our office or if you have questions regarding the program.

If you are a current landlord and are interested to know what Housing Authority inspectors look for in the Housing Inspection please follow this link to Commonly missed HQS Inspection items.
