I hope this helps!
Yes. Many people find themselves in this type of situation because they have either lost their home, jobs or both and have to rent.
Landlords are aware of this and many are prepared to lease but under certain conditions. Because they are taking a bigger risk be prepared that they may ask for a credit report, more deposit money and possible reference. Some landlords may be just as anxious to lease as you are to get a home and be very lienant and ask for none of these.
More importantly, be honest and upfront. You can disclose this information without going into deep details and divulging your personal life story. Be prepared with the information you need to give them. Prior to seeing a house for rent ask them what information you will be required to give as that can help you decide if you even want to consider that particular home.
I wish you well.
Anything is possible. You will just have to find a landlord who is willing to look past the recent issues and look at the rest of the information(maybe explaining your situation would help too). It all depends on the landlord, there is not set rule on credit score to rent a house, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if more than 50
% of landlords don't even run credit!
You may just have to sweet talk your way into the lease and possibly offer up a little extra security to offset the credit concerns.
Hope that helps and good Luck, let me know if you need any assistance finding a landlord that is willing to work with you.
I would disclose it up front to potential landlord
With the bankruptcy you should have a clear slate
Thank you and good luck
