I came from Brooklyn, New York. I transfered my Section 8 voucher from NY to NC. It was very time consuming. I started in September 2008 and just completed my NC Inspection. Keep in mind Wilmington, NC is behind on technology so things are not actually in place for such as task. I believe I was a trial run for my new landlord but the not the Section 8 Office in Wilmington. If I had the chance to do anything different I would have started alot earlier than September 2008; I would have started in January 2008. It took NY, three months to convert the voucher, when they tell you the average time is 4 to 6 weeks. My new landlord offfice workers were unfamiliar with what to do, due to the fact I was on unemployment when I started this process. I literally had to talk them through the process. Keep in mind, I knew where to go for assistance and what questions to ask (I have BA in Business Adm., Concentration Information Systems) when things got difficult.
