If a landlord/owner is signed up through the state to accept low income housing/section 8 & they have a tenant who has been living there over a year and isnt late paying rent or hasn't done anything that would cause her to have to move .Can the Owner give a 20 day notice to vacate /but not an eviction notice.
If you are a month-to-month tenant, the landlord can terminate the tenancy with 20 days' notice. I think you are really asking whether the landlord's acceptance of Section 8 subsidy payments requires the landlord to have just cause before terminating a tenancy. Section 8 does not normally give just-cause protection to the tenant, but check with your housing authority to see if anything in this landlord's Section 8 contract limits the landlord's ability to terminate.

Please ask your Section 8 caseworker. If the lease is over, the landlord does not need a reason to end the tenancy. Elizabeth Powell
