Even people, who have low credit score manage to find pretty good properties.
First option for renter with a low credit is to find a co-signer on your lease.
The second is to pay a larger deposit.
You can also include letters of recommendation from previous landlords, especially those who have rented to you most recently.

Realtors do not discuss areas in terms of safety, crime, danger, etc. because it could be in violation of fair housing laws. You'll have to do your own research on this.

Hi Tony,

Based on that address, I would use this crime map as a starting point:,CA,90807/

You can also use a website like this one to help you learn about the schools in the area:

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

As others have said, if you didn't agree to a per diem penalty in the initial contract then its very simple. No they won't be able to collect that.

They could however give you a notice to perform, let you try to close in XYZ hours, and cancel escrow (maybe taking your deposit) if you can't. This would all imply the fault is yours, your lenders, or somehow your agents. If the delay is sellers fault, they won't get far with this.

Agree with Gene, you probably need to read the contract again for clarification. Best wishes
