misty, Renter in 77379

Is there any chance of me finding a rental while on unemployment?

Asked by misty, 77379 Sun Sep 23, 2012

I just relocated from WA with my son. I was laid off from my employer of 12 years. I have just begun collecting unemployment and attend school in the evenings for my BA. I have excellent credit, flawless work history and reserve funds for deposit. I can also provide a co-signer if necessary. Will any rent to me?

Your credit and your history are definitely pluses....however, with no source of income other than unemployment, plus not having any history of renting in the area could be problematic.

If your co-signer has a good record, and if you can produce letters of commendation (for example, from prior landlords), you may have a good chance.

Good luck.

Any landlord will be concerned about where you continuing income (ability to pay the rent) will be coming from.

That doesn't mean it's impossible... merely much more difficult. The co-signer, presuming their credit is good and they are employed, would be helpful.
