Hello Roxanne,

What you wan to do is put together a letter of explanation on your situation. It looks like you have a good job which is definitely a plus. If you have had credit issues you want to take the time to write a letter to include with your application so that a perspective landlord can look at your situation and get a good idea of what happened and if you are a good risk for their investment.

A good way to write this letter is to explain what happened and the measures that have been taken by you to ensure that it won't happen again. Depending on the circumstances and your corrective actions you should be able to find a landlord willing to take the risk.

I do not typically work with lease clients but because I live and work in Cedar Park I would be happy to assist you. I have had luck finding homes for clients who I have listed and sold their homes as short sales so I am sure we can find a place for you.

If you have any questions or would like to talk further please give me a call.

Thank you,

The homes listed for lease in the MLS will have an application fee that is used to run your credit and background history. I have experienced property owners to be willing to work with prospective tenants if their credit is not so great, by allowing them to prepay the monthly rent in three to six month increments. Each property owner/management company is different, so it's on a case by case basis. I'd be happy to help you find something here in the Austin area!
