Section 8 Housing in SF Bay Area, California?

I was told that its illegal for section 8 tenants to pay out of their pocket for the difference in house rent . For Example: if the rent is 2500 and the Hud pays 1800, then the tenant cant pay 700. Is this true? Also, does this mean, if a landlord does accept the delta payment, he could potentially be sued? Thanks. show more I was told that its illegal for section 8 tenants to pay out of their pocket for the difference in house rent .
