Hi Damian, now and days there are lots of BK and poor credit score and most of condominiums are aware. I suggest your wife try to rent in a Rental Community, they are more prepare than private owners, as long your wife shows enough income to pay the rent you should be ok, and they may ask you to go thru screening, Disclosure your situation up front so you wont waist time and money with application fees. Good luck!

Damian -

The answer is YES and MAYBE no. Filing BK would not necessarily
be reason for you not welcome in the rental. Most condo associations
require that ALL occupants of LEGAL age be screened and or registered.

Makes sense?

It goes according to the lease. You may be able to stay with her as a visitor for up to 15 days or so (if those are the lease terms), but rarely over that. If she rents from a private individual there are better chances it can be arranged by face to face talk with the landlord. Not very likely if she rents from a corporation. Be honest and upfront with the lease holder and you will have greater chance of things being easily resolved.

I all depend if it is a single home with and association and required for the person living to get screen you may have a problen the same with a condominium if you need to get screen, but if all you have in your credit is a BK and your wife has good credit probably you may not have any problem. If she rent a single family without association you wont have any problem.

Yolande remember that not matter king or queen of the castle, if the neighbourhood has association, you better register with it because there it's always an extra eye in the area to make your life misserable.

If your wife rents a property, she can have anybody she wants in her residence, especially her husband. She can choose to be the only one on the lease : What difference does it make ? Oce she is in her domain and has paid her rent, she is the Queen in her castle. This is stil the United States of America, or maybe not anymore !

Perfect Credit, no toooo much people has it. Provide income prove, like paystubs. That's shows to the landlord that you are able to paid the rent. Also direct rental deposit from your account to owner account is a plus. Nothing to be worry about it. Go ahead.

Damian, when a couple rent an apartment your credit is check by the owner, and decide if rent it to you or not. Now, the association asks for the police report of each one of the tenants. That way you get a parking spot, and any benefit of the apt. So you have to register with the association. Now, if the property has not association, the owner it's the one who decides. So go for it. Good luck.

Damian,
Now a days, we can find landlords and lenders who are able to work with people with less than perfect credit.
You might want to give me a call and see what options we can get.

I do alot of rentals and every place is different. Things to consider are parking stickers, security guards, towing companies. Better to be OK'd by the association and avoid problems later after you've moved in. Have them just put your wife's name on the lease but you living with her. That should not be a problem.

No. You can't live there. Yes, there'd be a problem.

(At least probably you can't live there.)

The lease probably requires each tenant to be listed. Or at least each adult tenant. Otherwise, you'd be classified as a "guest." And while there are different definitions of "guest," it's often something like a daytime visitor who spends no more than one night a week in the property.

Read the lease to make sure.

If your wife rents the property by herself and doesn't put you down as a tenant, then she'd be violating the terms of her lease and subject to eviction.
