YES! many of our renters in the last three to four years have experienced either a short sale or a foreclosure as well as bankruptcy filings. MOST landlord's look for your income to make sure you can pay the rent. If you have poor credit with no reserve funds, then you may have to address a landlord who is afraid you will file bankruptcy during the lease term and some may put in protections from that. Typical rule of thumb on rents is that they should not be more than 1/3 of your Gross income monthly. So if you are looking at $1500/month rents, then your monthly income should be over $4500.
