Does anyone know a landlord that will let you rent if one person on the lease has an eviction?

Asked by Jill Weston, Philadelphia, PA Sun Feb 3, 2013

I am looking for a 3 bedroom home for myself, my fiance, my mother, & my sister. My mother has an eviction from 6 years ago on her credit. My fiance' works, I babysit & bring in $300 plus a week, & my mother receives Social Security. We have 2 dogs & we need to move ASAP! If anyone knows of anything please let me know. Thank you!

I thought additional deposits were not permitted under PA rental law. Jennifer, are you sure? Any lawyers here? Thanks

If you would like to discuss further, I would be happy to try to help. As Miekeba stated, there is usually a way to work around something like an eviction with some Landlords, such as additional deposits.
Please feel free to contact me so we can discuss your needs, rental price range, area, and so on.
You can email me: Thanks!

Hi Jill, yes I do. Unfortunately I only work DC and MD. Have a local Realtor help you find a lenient private owner. Sometimes they may ask for two months rent as a deposit. Sincerely, Miekeba Jones

Do you mean you only know someone in the DC & MD?
