Hi Reeni! It certainly is, most likely you'd have to provide tax returns or bank statements as proof of ability to make payments. Let me know if you'd like help with your move!

that is going to be up to the individual you are looking to rent from. I know from experience most apartment complexes require proof of employment so they know you can afford the apartment. Managemetn compaines are going to require the same thing unless you have a great stopry to tell them and then it will be very difficult to get soemoen to potentially rent to you.

I have seentti done in the past and helped a girlfriend of my wife in such a situation when she was getting divorced and looking for a job. But we went through probably 5 or 6 places before we found one to rent to us.

Be upfront and have a copy of your credit report can help.....
