Does a Massachusetts Landlord Have to Approve a Section 8 Applicant?

Does a Massachusetts landlord have to approve a Section 8 applicant? No, so longHome and Key.jpg as the reason for the rejection is not the Section 8 voucher. Landlords are required by state law to participate in the Section 8 program, if a Section 8 voucher holder is the most qualified applicant. That does not mean you have to approve the rental application for anyone just because they have a Section 8 voucher. You can reject their application for the same reasons you would reject other applicants, so long as the reason is genuinely unrelated to their receipt of public assistance.
