Lynda Rose McMahan has six days until she needs to move out of her Suisun City apartment. The 55-year-old, who has a disability, has been on the federal housing choice voucher program — also known as Section 8 — for six years. McMahan lived in the same apartment the entire time, until her landlord decided not to renew her lease. She spent the weeks leading up to July 31 struggling to find a landlord that accepts the housing choice voucher. Get the full story in the video above.

GIVEN THE GREEN LIGHT TO MOVE
IN. VICKI: LYNDA ROSE MCMAHAN IS
APPROACHING A STRESSFUL
DEADLINE. THE 55-YEAR-OLD NEEDS TO MOVE
OUT OF HER APARTMENT IN SIX
DAYS. >> I’M NOT A WEALTHY PERSON. IF I DID, I WOULDN’T BE LIVING
HERE FOR SIX YEARS. VICKI: LYNDA IS DISABLED
BENEFITTING FROM A FEDER
HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER, FORMERLY
KNOWN AS SECTION 8, TO LIVE
AFFORDABLY. >> BECAUSE I HAVE A VOUCHER, I
SHOULD BE ABLE TO PORT ANYWHERE
IN THE UNITED STATES. VICKI: "SHOULD" IS THE OPERATIVE
WORD. LYNDA FINDING OUT THE HARD WAY
THAT MANY LANDLORDS DON’T ACCEPT
SECTION 8. HOWEVER, IN THE 11TH HOUR,
STRIKING HOUSING GOLD. >> IT’S ACROSS THE RAILROAD
TRACKS. VICKI: BUT ONCE AGAIN, RUNNING
INTO A SECTION 8 PREDICAMENT
LYNDA CURRENTLY LIVES IN SUISUN
CITY. LAST MINUTE, SHE WAS ACTUALLY
ABLE TO FIND A PLACE TO RENT IN
NEIGHBORING FAIRFIELD LESS THAN
TWO MILES AWAY
THE PROBLEM IS EVEN THOUGH
SECTION 8 IS A FEDERAL HOUSING PROGRAM, THAT VOUCHER DOESN’T
IMMEDIATELY TRANSFER FROM CITY
TO CITY. LYNDA GETTING THIS LETTER FROM
THE CITY OF FAIRFIEL
>> IT’S BASICALLY SAYING THAT IF
YOU MOVE ANYWHERE OUT OF T
CITY YOU ORIGINALLY GOT THE
SECTION 8 VOUCHER, YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL OF THE SAME
THINGS YOU WENT THROUGH. IT WILL TAKE AT LEAST FOUR WEEKS
TO PROCESS YOUR PAPERWORK. DO NOT MOVE INTO A UNIT PRIOR TO
YOUR INSPECTION PASSING. SO, WHERE AM I SUPPOSED TO LIVE
FOR A MONTH? VICKI: QUESTIONS WE HANDED OFF
TO THE FAIRFIELD HOUSING
AUTHORITY. >> EVERY HOUSING AUTHORITY IS
ITS OWN INDEPENDENT AGENCY IN
THE EYES OF THE FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT. SO IF YOU WANT TO COME INTO OUR
PROGRAM, ESSENTIALLY YOU START
AS IF YOU’RE A NEW PARTICIPANT. VICKI: AND MOVING IN BEFORE
GETTING THE GREEN LIGHT CAN
JEOPARDIZE THE HOUSING VOUCHER. >> THE RISK THERE IS ON BOTH THE
PARTICIPANT, OR THE TENANT, AS
WELL AS THE LANDLORD. VICKI: WITH LESS THAN A WEEK OF
HOUSING LEFT, LYNDA IS TAKING
HER CHANCES. >> I DO HAVE TO MOVE IN BECAUSE
I HAVE NO OTHER PLACE TO GO. VICKI: KNOWING THE RISK, BUT
RUNNING OUT OF OPTIONS. >> I’M PRAYING. THAT’S ALL I CAN DO IS PRAY

let's face it most of us aren't honest about the contents of our house so it is imperative that you get an in-home estimate and get three estimates they need to be able to see exactly how much stuff you have in your three bedroom house so they can get you the best estimate possible also how does insurance work with your move you know the interesting thing is a lot of times the insurance is based on the weight of an item and not the cost so be sure you check that out before you have the move you know grandma's China or some big electronic that may not weigh an appropriate amount for the insurance all movers have to carry insurance but the insurance is only 60 cents per pound per item so if you're looking at like a painting or a plate it's a that's really not going to be too much you're only looking at sixty cents per pound per item the number one cost-saving thing is I would say is to be organized decide what you want to move some people they will go ahead and you know clear everything out and that's really the way to do it there's no reason to pay us to come in and move things you're not really sure don't want
