The quickest and most simple step is to run a property profile online. This establishes who the actual owners are. If the people you are talking to are NOT the vested owners...run away as fast as you can! If they ARE, then you may want to proceed with caution.
I can run a property profile for you in less than 5 minutes. Please call me directly at (707) 583-8116 if you would like me to do so.
You might want to write a cover letter to the landlord explaining how you are a great tenant but you are just young and have no credit yet. You might provide character references and get letters from your cell phone and car insurance that payments have been made on time.... more
I don't deal with rentals but I wish you the best of luck . Maybe you can qualify for section 8 housing due to your recent misfortune. I would try that if you haven't already, and I will keep you in mind should I come across anything. Best Regards, Johanna... more

Constance, Have you checked Craigs List? Beware, however, of big rental scams. NO PERSONAL or BUSINESS information (checking accts,Soc.Sec#'s) over the internet!! When renting a property in today's scam world I would ask to see identification of the party you are dealing and ask if they are the owner. If they are the owner then ask a local realtor to pull up the "tax records" to verify they really ARE the owners!!! If they are a property manager then see their ID and get a DRE Lciensing number. Check them out!!
We have seen many horror stories of prospective tenants giving personal financial information only to find out it's a big scam!! Careful. I use a property manager named Sue Carrel. Her number is: 707-237-5199 Ext: 705... more
