The letter is a good idea.

I manage many properties, and I don't have a problem renting to people with BK, short sale or foreclosures as long as their other credit looks okay. As well as the applicant's current income and application looks good.

ps - I have a 1,850sq.ft. home in Ardenwood available if you'd like.

As I represent landlords in the area, I would say you should be able to show a minimum of 6 months of rent in your bank account on top of possibly offering last month rent with deposit.

Be upfront, Write a Letter in include with applications. If you are upfront & honest, some landlords may show leniency.

Much will depend on the individual landlord; therefore consider being upfront as to your bankruptcy, be prepared to show proof of employment/paystubs, possibly some reference letters, etc.
