Ronald Shaffery answered:
You are correct. A landlord can ask for first month's rent and a security deposit of 1.5X the monthly rent max. Attached is the latest truth in lending booklet from the NJ Real Estate Commission. A lot of people also believe you can charge an additional deposit fee for pets, also inaccurate, the deposit can not exceed 1.5X the base rent. ... more

Paul Combitsis answered:

There is no clear-cut answer, however, if you're simply asking about TRENDS and an "on the average" sort of answer, I would say the short sale. Someone could be in a short sale situation not necessarily because they can't pay their bills, but because they need to move (say, a job relocation) and their house is worth less than what is owed on it. In the case of a foreclosure, most of the time this is the result of a homeowner not being able to pay their mortgage every month, no matter WHAT the reason. Again, it could be something that is beyond one's control (e.g. a single mom going through a divorce; she may have gotten the house, but she can't afford the monthly payment), but foreclosure does carry a negative connotation to it. In either case, some explanation to the landlord might be in order if asked about it.

If you are interested in me coming out to take a look at the home I would be more than happy to. There are a lot of things to decide when a short sale is involved. I have numerous designations for short sales and I am certified as a preferred agent with some of the larger banks. There is no way any agent can tell you without seeing the condition, layout, floors, kitchen (updated 10 years ago or 30), pool, basement, etc.

It is more difficult. I've worked with some folks in your shoes and it has helped to "tell the story" - so that the credit report does not stand alone. Work with an agency that has the patience and willingness to help you.

In the end, it is the landlord's decision. You'll need to convince them that you can be counted on to pay your rent on time and without interruption in spite of your past hard times.

Good luck and best,

Hello Alicia,
Some landlords prefer a longer term tenant so they don't have to draw up a new lease again at he end of the term or incur the expense of preparing the unit for a new tenant . Perhaps you could discuss this option upfront with each landlord of properties you are interested in to determine if they would consider a longer lease period.

Good luck to you!

Carla Pennington answered:
You can't be discriminated against because of the size of your family, except that the property code here says that there can be no more than two people to a bedroom on the lease. But just because you have children is not a reason a landlord can use to not rent to you.

Pets are another story - as well as smokers in the residence. You will need to look for houses that allow pets or smokers if that applies.

Your Realtor can filter the search for properties that allow pets and/or smoking.

This would be a good question for your Bank's LOSS MITIGATION DEPARTMENT; not us.
