One of the biggest downfalls to renting a home is the applications and associated fees you need to submit. If you haven't been approved for this application, try to find out if it is credit related. If yes, I would pull your credit and find out what is on it (if you don't already know). If you have previous rental evictions, criminal issues, or even a recent foreclosure or short sale, discuss them with the Realtor who is listing the property you are interested in. With this, most experienced Realtors/Property Managers know from what you tell them, if there is a chance you will be declined. If they think you will be declined, then look for another home. If the listing Realtor/Property Manager refuses to give you an indication (this is not an approval or a decline) based on what you've told them, look for another home. Also, verify if there are any other applications on the property. I always advise my clients to avoid putting in an application/fee when there is currently an application being considered. On another note, you have the right to be represented by your own Realtor. Your Realtor can be in touch with the listing Realtor/Property Manager and discuss your concerns.

I hope this helps!

All most all management companies do run your credit. We understand that in this econcomy, very few people renting homes have a high credit score and a lot of them have a foreclosure. I will look at the complete report, but am very understanding on credit issues (with the exception of judgements from evictions, etc). All I ask is that when you are filling out the application, just be honest with me. ... more

Did you collect a security deposit? If yes, you could apply it towards last month's rent. The problem is that you would be left with very little or nothing in case the tenant damages the property when he moves out.

Did he give you a reason for not paying the last month's rent?

He is probably thinking that you will not evict considering that it is his last month. But that is an option you have.

Good luck!
