I highly recommend this company. They currently manage a portfolio over 500 homes. Waypoint will offer lease options for those who want to purchase. They will also assist a tenant in future purchases with a credit back of the rent paid. The purchaser does not have to buy a Waypoint owned home. My clients that I have referred to this program expressed sincere appreciation for the dignity and respect with which they were treated.

Some Apartment complexes are not as strict as others where leasing is concerned. You might also find a homeowner who is leasing themselves, who will give your friend a chance. When a person has bad credit, it does reflect upon how they handle their bills, making them a high risk for landlords. If your friend offers a large deposit that will help.
If all the Landlords refused all those people, we would have a LOT of homeless people.
Go find a House or Apartment that is owned and managed by a people/person, not a Management Company; make an appointment and talk to them; tell them what happened and what you are doing. Be open and honest: If they won't rent to you, you probably didn't want them as your landlord anyway.
Good luck and may God bless
