Become a Landlord
Brunswick Housing Authority provides rent subsidy payments to owners and landlords of privately owned buildings through its Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8). The agency administers the voucher program and determines whether tenants are eligible. The buildings are managed and leased by their owners, who screen tenants for suitability.
The Landlord Portal
We have launched portal for landlords. The new system will make it easy for user to:
- review Housing Assistance Payments (HAP)
- view inspection results
- look up tenant information
If you haven’t signed up for direct deposit yet, you can find the form here.
The Housing Choice Voucher Program (also known as Section 8) is a rental assistance program subsidized by the federal government.
Tenant-based Housing Choice Vouchers allow voucher recipients to choose and rent units from private landlords and owners. If you are in good standing with the Brunswick Housing Authority and have units located within Glynn County, you are welcome to participate.
Brunswick Housing Authority pays a fixed amount of the rent to you each month. The tenant pays the difference between this subsidy and the total rent. In general, tenants pay at least 30 percent—but no more than 40 percent—of their monthly adjusted income for rent and utilities. Tenants may pay more than 40 percent of their income after the first year.
The Brunswick Housing Authority does not determine the amount of rent you can charge. However, the Brunswick Housing Authority will perform a rent reasonableness to determine if your rental amount is comparable to similar properties in the area.
Benefits of Participating
Every month you will receive HAP (Housing Assistance Payments) at the same time every month preferably via direct deposit.
Flexibility and Stability
Our participants are required to report any change in income within ten days of the change. Therefore, if and when the tenant’s income drops, we will reduce their portion of the rent and increase the Brunswick Housing Authority’s portion. If the participant’s income increases, which would increase their portion of the rent, the Brunswick Housing Authority will give the landlord and tenant a full thirty (30) days’ notice to prepare for the change.
