If you're looking to rent it is going to be tough. Best best is an individual landlord rather than a corporate landlord. The individual landlord is more likely to be subjective in their decision.

Considering your situation which is no doubt rough, you might do better to stay where you are for a while or at least until you get working again. A low credit score is not a good thing but couple that with no work and your options dwindle. Best of luck to you.

Perhaps your question was cut off, what information are you looking for...if looking to rent much will depend on the individual landlord....

Much will depend on the individual landlord; consider being upfront, be prepared to show your brother's proof of employment/pay stubs, possibly have some reference letters handy, etc.; or consider a guarantor...
