Just look over these on in the source. Prices are low and affordable, so I'm not sure they will accept your voucher, but if it's affordable, you can take it without no problems.

Hello Bria.ball13, yes you should be able to secure a rental with additional deposit. You may also qualify to buy depending on the evictions and how they appear on your reports. Are they on the reports as judgements? If so you may qualify to buy with 3 payments made in a payment arrangement.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

How much are you paying in rent and for how many bedrooms and if condo, townhouse or single family home and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve? There are many cities within Los Angeles and zip codes so if you could narrow it down. You should study RENT vs BUY listings to make a decision although many rentals are ready to move in and purchase take 30-45 days once you find a home and get into escrow.

The rentals in LA start from $800-$900 for studio or 1bd 1ba apts. The purchase start from 175k for 3bd 1ba single family home in Los Angeles.

You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses and pay about what you would pay in rent with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Hello Niiii, the rentals in Hollywood start from $1,495 for 1bd 1ba apt and up. The purchase in Los Angeles start from 119k for 1bd 1ba condo and the single family homes start from 140k for 2bd 1ba home. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent.

Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.

You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.

If you decide you want to buy you will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

If you are buying a primary residence you could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 424k.

Yes, you can. You may want to pick up the phone and call at least a couple local agents as some are not specializing in rental.

Hello Brianna, that should be written in your rental lease contract so look there as it should be spelled out. You could consult with the Los Angeles Inland Mediation Board for tenant and landlord rights which gives free legal advice as well as representation if needed. Here is a link.

UpNest answered:
Typically the renter pays the commission on a rental apartment. There are certain circumstances where the building or landlord will pay the realtor's commission, especially it it's an off season like in the winter when things are slow. UpNest.com can help you find a realtor with a low commission fee for rentals in your local area. ... more
