QUESTION: From Guy D.,
Recently a Section 8 person moved in and we noticed some hallway fires being set by her kid. He set a paper sign on fire but it didn’t do any real damage and we couldn’t prove it was him. However on Christmas Eve, this tenant broke our rules and left a box of clothes in the hallway and then someone put a cigarette butt into the clothes and it started a hallway fire and did a lot of damage and smoke and the fire department had to be called. This tenant is leaving now voluntarily, but should we report her to section 8 and risk having to spend money fighting her to evict her in court or should we just let her leave and report her later to section 8 after she is not an additional expense to us? We are afraid that the cost to evict her will not be paid by Section 8 and that we can’t make fire claims against Section 8. Is there any type of Claims we can make against Section 8 to pay for the Fire Damage, etc.?
