Hello,

Each home is owned by an individual and your best bet would be to write a thorough letter of explanation regarding your circumstances and what happened along with the corrective measures you have since taken to ensure those mistakes do not happen again. I am sure you will be able to eventually find some place to rent.

Hope this helps.

There is not enough information given here for me to answer your question. But I am a dog lover, too! We currently have 3 dogs and a cat in the house.
First, we would have to know how much rent you can afford, and then we'll establish a price range that you are willing to look at. Second, we would have to know what areas you and your family are willing to live in.
Once we have the parameters of price and location set, then we can begin looking for houses to rent. The timing of your move may also be critical for you. If you are not ready to pay the rent for the next month, then it is too early to consider houses which are on the market now. But when I know when your current lease is up, then we will begin the search for a nice house at the appropriate time.
Your concern seems to be focused on a large dog you have. Most, but not all, landlords will consider a family pet once they know they have a good tenant who is submitting an application. So let's get YOU approved first, and then we can work on the landlord to get him to approve having a dog in residence. There will be a large deposit for a large dog, and some of it may be NON-refundable. Each landlord makes up their own rules. Small dogs, and even children, can cause as much damage to a property as a large dog can. It all depends on how they have been trained.
So my recommendation to a landlord is to go to the tenant's current residence and see how the dog is behaving there. You might even suggest that in your application to a partcular landlord that they come meet your dog at your current home. It might help if you offered a large deposit for the animal. (Money talks.) But most property managers have set rules, and many of them are prejudiced against large dogs.
If you will give me your parameters, I will gladly run a search for you. Then we can ask each landlord what their pet policy is.
Good Luck!

Dear Noemi,

I'm sorry to hear you've had some rough times. By the time you get a foreclosure AND a bankruptcy on your credit report, the FICO score is going to be low. I am a Certified Instructor in Credit Repair, so I can show you how to bring your score back up. But it will take time.

The criteria for accepting a tenant's application is totally up to the landlord, or property manager, for each house. Most will not accept someone with late payments, or missed payments, on a mortgage. Since you say you had a foreclosure, I will assume there were missing payments. It might depend on how long ago these items showed up in your history, but you said it was "recent", so that is going to be held against you. The chances of you finding a nice house for lease where the property manager will let you have it are pretty silm, but you might offer a large cash deposit up front with your application, and see if that sways their decision.

One option is to rent an apartment for a year and pay the rent early every month. Then get a letter from the manager, and submit that with your application to rent a house next year. Offer to set up a direct draft from your bank for the rent. Or, better yet, pay the rent for six months in advance. You will have to take aggressive measures to get your credit rating back.

Whatever you do --- do NOT make a late payment after having filed a bankruptcy!

Contact me directly for more suggestions on what you can do. Good luck.

Happy New Year! ---2013 can't be any worse.

I would have to say YES, since there are always people out morning, noon and night. I
am there daily to work on the project, and feel very safe. I have family that lives on the block, and have been there for a number of years, which is why I felt comfortable and confidant in buying here.
From this property, go north on Hulen (at the corner), turn east on Camp Bowie. About 2 miles to downtown. Under 10 minute drive.

Hi Nicolai,

The best way to learn more about DFW area is to arrive this area and take a look at your options.

Bedford is not very close to Dallas bar areas although you can live in Bedford close to your office and go to Fort Worth bar areas or Dallas bar areas. They both are very nice, some people like Fort Worth while the others like Dallas...One of the biggest bar Billy Bob's Texas is in Fort Worth that you will enjoy TX style night life ;)

Nico, We have a special campaign nowadays, Email me ASAP to learn how you can get a $50 gift card while leasing!!!!

Chris Hutchinson answered:
It may take a little searching but you can still find rental if you filed bankruptcy. You may want to determine what part of town you at willing to move to first. This way you can determine if your rent range is right for the area.

You need to know that landlords will require double te security deposit due to your credit in most scenarios. So make sure you have the money saved.
You want to be up front with the landlord and the agent you work with otherwise you can waste a small fortune in application fees.
Make sure you earn well over the amount requires to live in the property. You gross monthly income should be at least 3 times the rent.
Get rental references in order. Make sure you have pervious landlords vouch for you. If you owned and your mortgage was paid on time bring proof of payment receipts.

Good luck. Renting after bankruptcy can be done but you need to have all all your stuff in order.

If you are looking at aggregator sites like Trulia or Zillow I have run into properties that have sold 6 months ago and shown as available. Work with a Realtor® in your area that does rentals to find the most current listings. By the way it may take a couple of weeks for a newly listed property to show up on these types sites and the best properties in high demand areas area gone already. ... more
