I understand the need to keep a tight budget, but the govt policy of 2 people per bedroom, no exceptions, is ridiculous. Not all double occupancy tenants should share a bedroom, but HUD insists that the living room can be used for a second bedroom. What good does that do? The person in the living room still has no privacy, no space for a dresser or closet for clothes, and their sleep is often disrupted by the other tenant, or visitors. I was raised that your kitchen/dining area is for food prep and storage, a table to eat at, etc. A living room is for social interaction and entertainment. The bedrooms are for sleeping, dressing, storing clothes and other personal items. But with the present policy, I will be forced to cook, eat, sleep AND entertain in "my bedroom." My bed will double as a couch, a bed, AND a dining table. I will have no privacy. If my adult daughter takes the living room, she would face the same problems, and my insomnia would disrupt her sleep. She needs to find work and have some kind of structured living arrangement. The 1-bdrm units are barely big enough for ONE person to live in. They are more like "flop houses".... fine if all you use the unit for is sleeping and showers. But two people can't LIVE in a 500 sq ft apt. The units that are adequate size are in neighborhoods not safe for people who drive & have cars, much less those who have to walk everywhere. In Tucson, city lights are dim, pinkish, and far between, because of the airport and AFB, making walking to & from work an unsafe proposition. When I rented my present apt, the policy said that two adults (not a couple,) could have a two bedroom. Then they changed it to 1 per two people, regardless. As long as we stay here, we can keep the 2-bdrms, but my landlord is getting lax on property upkeep and wants out of the Sec 8 program. I need to move, but can't find anything suitable AND within Sec 8 limits. For just $20.00 more per month (even if I had to pay it myself,) I could get a decent rental in a safer, well lighted neighborhood with job prospects all around for my daughter. But HUD won't allow me to make up that extra cost.
