The only thing you can do is offer a prospective landlord an additional amount for security deposit or prepayment of rent.
Contact a consumer credit counseling organization to find out the best way to handle the debt and get a copy of your credit report.

Good luck!

As a local in the area I would say that that particular vicinity does vary. It is an older part of town where there is good areas and not so good areas. You can check the crime rate from the previous mentioned web links but ultimately the choice remains yours.

Drive around near the home you are interested in and get a feel for the neighborhood. Ask neighbors how they like the area and what the advantages and disadvantages are to them.

If you have any other questions feel free to contact me at anytime. Good luck on your home buying experience!

James Wehner answered:
A 'Homeowner's Association Fee' that you may be referring to, is a fee paid by all homeowners residing within the community. Arizona's local governments over the years required the developers to defer the common area maintenance to be paid and cared for by the homeowners in that subdivision/ planned area development instead of the city retaining the maintenance burden.

The Home Owner's Association (HOA), elects a board of directors to oversee the community maintenance operations as well as the budgeting and collections of dues for the maintenance. Your HOA fee is typically paid either monthly, quarterly, or annually by all homeowners in the community.

For more specifics on the HOA dues, rules and regulations, and guidelines to live in a HOA, you'll want to reference the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) for the community.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any further questions.
