Kicked Out: Cobb County families say they are not wanted in rental properties

A CBS46 Investigation discovered a growing problem with affordable housing, as advocates demand change in Cobb County.

 Tenants say they are being kicked out of their apartments — not because they aren’t paying rent — but instead, how they pay rent. A CBS46 investigation found “source of income discrimination” is widespread, just as the metro’s housing market explodes.
“Poor people are being pushed out of Cobb,” Susan Mealer said.

CBS46 Investigates obtained a copy of the letter which was a 60 day notice to leave. The grandmother says she regularly paid roughly $700 rent. The letter suggests she didn’t get the boot because of a lack of payment, instead because of the type of payment.

The landlord, according to the letter, no longer wants section 8 tenants. It reads in part, “we are not participating in the renewal of any MHA lease,” also know as Marietta Housing Authority leases, the local division of the federal housing choice voucher program, or section 8.
