Heres How:

You can remove a listing from Trulia in a couple of ways.
If the listing was manually submitted you can remove the property through your account page. Simply Log in to, hover your mouse pointer over your name in the top right corner of the page. The site navigation menu will appear as a drop down menu, click on "my listings". Once in the listings page choose the "for rent" tab. Your property will appear with an "edit property" button. Hover over the edit listing button and from the drop down menu select delete property. To remove it from the site select the deleted folder and select the delete forever button next to the listing you wish to remove from the site. ... more

Sure, if the prospective landlord accepts you. Many do not even do a credit check; if there is a place you really really want, fill out the application and if the bankruptcy is recent, be honest and explain circumstances that prevented you from going on without bankruptcy; for example, a couple wrote on their application that one of their kids died after a heart transplant and the medical bills after insurance paid their part was still over $900,000.00; there was no way to pay it, and their idea of a really good, generous "payment plan" was $2200 a month; they would not go lower on payment plans, so it all ended up on my credit report and that's why my report sucks.

If the bankruptcy was years ago, don't even mention it. Chances are they won't check it anyway, and its worth a shot.

In fact, even if your bankruptcy is recent, you could just leave it out and take the chance that they won't check it. Believe me, many don't check it, they figure just mentioning that they will do a credit check is enough to scare away anyone with bad credit.

Good luck.,

Hey, you need somewhere to live; sometimes in life you gotta do what ya gotta go. Its that simple.

Jo Shaner answered:
Check out the condition and notate anything that is amiss before taking occupancy. Be aware of the begining and ending terms and if there is a clause for disruption (break the the lease, relocation or being away from the premise longer than 14 days). See what the tenant rights are in the lease (when can the landlord come in) and what is considered an emergancy repair? What deposits are refundable and which ones are not. ... more
