How does my evicting a Section 8 tenant help me?

Evicting a Section 8 tenant can help you in several ways. Families get the message when owners display no tolerance for serious or repeated violations of the lease. They want to keep their Section 8 assistance and not place it in jeopardy.

When tenants learn by your actions that you do enforce your leases, and are not reticent to go through eviction if needed, they have a greater incentive to abide by the terms of the lease.
