Shelly Koehler answered:
Each property or landlord has their own criteria. You would just want to ask that question prior to paying any application fees to be sure it wouldn't be an automatic denial. Everything is relevant and will probably depend on time since, re-establishment etc. but again, up to the owner of the property. ... more

Michael Brownstead answered:
Hello, if you had representation from a professional real estate agent when you leased the home, you may want to speak with that person to see how they can assist you. Otherwise, the Texas Real Estate Commission may be able to assist you with this matter. However; you may want to check your lease, because it "might" state that the lease will be month-to-month after the first year or other terms. ... more

Hi, You can visit www.HomeFair.com and click on city reports for in-depth crime stats and area demographics. Some other options are www.SpotCrime.com and also calling the local police dept. Unfortunately agents are prohibited from talking about crime.

Jay Narey answered:
Excellent question. I've represented tenants and landlords alike.
The most important thing you can do is read the entire lease carefully before signing it.
Make sure you can meet and agree with the stipulations therein.
You particularly have to be careful whenever a property is being managed by a Corporate Relocation type
company - often times their "standard" leases have all kinds of provisions beneficial to their client -
but can be very tough on the tenant.

Hopefully you are being represented by a licensed agent in the transaction for your protection.
If you are being represented by a Realtor, they can pull comps on rental properties just like we do with
sale properties to get a good idea of what similar properties are leasing for.

I recently represented a client (a Physician) on a rather expensive lease of nearly $ 4000/month
and because the property was managed by a large Corporate management type company - they
had a clause in the lease which would have allowed the Owners of the property (their client) the
ability to move back into the property with 30 days notice if their overseas temporary assignment was
cancelled or otherwise cut short. My client (the prospective tenant) said "No way...I need a set and defined
lease term of at least 1 year duration...or no deal." This was reasonable. I explained to the Management Company that my client was going to great expense to move into this property and didn't want to be faced with the possibility of being asked to move out in Month 3 or 4 of the lease. Fortunately the Owners of the property agreed to strike this particular clause in the Contract - so we were able to close the deal !

One final thing - make sure you notice who (you or the landlord) will be responsible for any yard/garden care, pool, and any maintenance issues that arise during the lease.

Good Luck !

Sarah Klamm answered:
Your lease should clearly state the procedure, including how much notice is required. If you don't still have yours, ask the manager for a copy of your SIGNED lease agreement.

Robert Greenblatt answered:
Hi. The determination about whether you are credit worthy to a landlord can be very subjective. If your rent has been paid on time and you have a good job history with adequate income to pay your bills, you should be able to find a home to rent. Your credit report may only reflect the late mortgage payments. That is a much better situation than a foreclosure. How about running a credit report to see what it looks like. That way, when you start looking for your next home, you can share your story with the prospective landlord.

You need the legal advice of an attorney who specializes in Landlord and tenant laws. No real estate agent can give you legal advice and you certainly need it. Good Luck
