Hello....I'm not clear on how far along in the bankruptcy your friends are, however I would advise them to find an apartment or home to rent/lease as soon as possible in case a credit check is required. Also, be prepared to show proof of current income to your future landlord/property manager at the time of interview or rental appointment. Unfortunately, there have been a huge number of bankruptices over the last several years, however, this will not keep or prevent you from being able to find a new, temporary home to rent or lease. Good luck!... more
Having seen your post out here for a few days, wanted to follow up and see about pointing you in the right direction for your search. Unfortunately, this found its way to the Knoxville, Tennessee section of Trulia Voices - and never having had the pleasure to make it to your Knoxville, I'd be *no* help to you at all (grin).
