I work with a company named wecosign.com and they act as a guarantor for leases. They guarantee, to the landlord, that if a tenant is 5 days late, on the 6th day, they will write a check for the rent. Thus, there is no risk for the landlord/owner to accept an applicant as a tenant who has an application backed by wecosign. They were founded for people with credit issues from divorce, medical issues, natural disasters, etc. Thus, as an applicant, you can also look at craigslist ads, apartment buildings and For Rent By Owners that you may not be able to see when working with a Realtor. A few of my clients have used them and they were very happy with the program. They are a nationwide company so you can use them to apply anywhere. Feel free to tell them that I gave you their information. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me for more information.
