Best of luck to you,
activity in our modern capitalistic society. But, for renters, a letter vouching for the person from a
credible source will assist when making such decisions. I suggest a full disclosure of all available
information and cross your fingers and pray......
I agree with TR - the property management companies are going to do background checks. You could include an explanation of what occurred or how you have changed since then as additional info for the owner to make their own decision.
As well as driving around, I would also recommend checking out online communities, such as Craigslist and the local classifieds, many of which can be found online.
