Is there any way to rent a home with a bankruptcy? I have a great rental history and can afford to pay, but cant find anyone to rent to me.

Be very, very careful of scams. There are a lot of them going around the rental market right now in the Denver Metro area. Do not send a check to anyone unless you have verified they are the owner of the property for rent or are authorized to manage the property. If it seems too good to be true it is. Good luck!

Property Managers or Landlords all make their decisions to rent to a tenant differently. Most of the time you'll find that apt. complexes which are professionally managed will go strictly by the book and because of the procedures they are required to follow by the complex's ownership will not consider you if you don't meet their guidelines. You didn't say what type of housing you are looking for but chances are you will have much better luck if you are dealing directly with Landlords or smaller Property Management Groups that have the ability to make their own decisions. One word of advice I would give you is to make sure you make a good first impression and that you can provide good references. Landlords and Property Managers are highly influenced by this; Sometimes more so than your financials.

Twjb,

Don't give up. Get some strong reference letters and emphasize your payment history. Also get an employment record to show your work stability. It may help if you offer to pay a few months in advance and possibly pay a larger damage deposit. Try to sweeten the pot for the landlord. Even in this tight market, you will find someone who will rent to you. There are many others in your same situation right now, so don't feel like your situation is the worst for an owner to consider.
