You should be fine. Hopefully you don't have pets since many landlords do not allow pets because of insurance restrictions. The only difficulty you may find is most realtors prefer to work with buyers and sellers - not renters. The issue is the commission for rentals is small. Realtors can make more money buying and selling homes for clients. Yes it's called greedy realtors. ... more

You typify a person "getting on with it" despite your circumstances. Good for you! On the other hand, your fiance's broken lease is the gift that will keep on giving until he goes back and makes amends by settling the debt or paying the judgement. You cannot avoid this without "dooming" yourselves to poor living conditions for years into the future.

I'll assume your question is about proving the bedbugs or roaches were in the apartment when you moved in. If so, make sure you get a "Move-In Inspection" checklist to make note of the bugs and return it to the landlord in the time required. Of course you will keep a copy for yourself, and as an added measure take photos with your phone and email them to yourself to "date stamp" the problem.

Again, your fiance' will have to go back to move forward.

Best of luck!!

It's god that you have still time to choose the best place to stay. It's strange to me why don't you using Trulia for this purposes, but with this site, you can overcome your eviction and credit report because of bidding system, that allows catching landlord's attention with the additional 100-200$. Maybe it will be a solution in your situation. ... more

The only thing you can do is offer a prospective landlord an additional amount for security deposit or prepayment of rent.
Contact a consumer credit counseling organization to find out the best way to handle the debt and get a copy of your credit report.

Good luck!

Depending on your budget there are some good rental options in the Biltmore area. I would avoid anything on Indian School.

"Typical" has gone away with more companies offering "a la carte" services and/or flat fees as opposed to a percentage of rents. With this in mind, think of what you want or the offerings included in the price of several companies.

For a company recommendation I'd pick mine. Not me (because I don't do property management,) but the company I work with. They have more than a century of combined experience and have a CPA as an accountant.

If you're interested, message me through Trulia or follow the link to my website.

Best of luck and "Happy Thanksgiving!"

Karen Peyton answered:
Rather than list all possibilities for deposits which is impossible, I'll instead tell you:
Deposits are refundable ~and~
Fees are never refundable.

A security deposit is generally one month's rent, but may be 1.5 times one month's rent. A pet deposit will be an additional cost.
Fees are largely based upon the landlord/property management company and "type" of rental - luxury vs. "average" single family, condo, townhouse, patio home, or apartment.

Here's a link to the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act, to answer any further question you may have:

Best of luck!

Since I'm not an attorney, here is my opinion...

If you in fact have a valid lease and are in full compliance and without breach, it is legally binding upon the parties, and passes without interruption, in its entirety to the new owner.

Again, since I'm not an attorney - here is a link to the Arizona Department of Housing where you will find some great information, phone numbers and the Arizona Residential Landlord & Tenant Act...:

Finally...since I'm not an attorney - I suggest you speak with one if you have difficulty.

Best of luck!
