Well, I know the situation pretty much. I have a law degree and did unlawful detainers (evictions) and homeowner work for a year. However, I did choose to leave law to go into teaching to be with my family because we couldn't handle the long hours after my divorce (it was rough). That transition and the high cost of living while not being able to pay my student loans is what messed up my credit. However, at the time I felt like it was a price I had to pay. However, I am teaching online classes now and can continue to do that with my move so I will move with a job that pays about $40k a year and my daughter is working part time. So, I do have hope and things are moving in the right direction. I just had to get her through school and get out of California, simple 2+2=4.

As a 6plus year renter, I found the best landlord were the ones that weren't affiliated with companies. Drive around where you'd like to live, look at the for rent signs and call the numbers. alot of people are cash strapped and won't turn away rent money. Most will require 1 months rent as a security deposit so plan ahead.

Good Luck and Check Craigslist to for private landlords.

It seems to me that a few months ago when I was half-heartedly looking at apartment ads there were many that actually stated right in the ads that there was no credit check. Others would say, "your job is your credit" or something like that. My guess is that these aren't exactly in the most desirable neighborhoods, but my point is that if push comes to shove I don't think you'll have to resign yourself to living in a cardboard box just because of bad credit. You'll be able to find a place. Good luck.

My spouse and myself are looking to move to Charlotte soon, we live now in Cheyenne, Wyoming the reason for the move is that my spouse have medical condition no longer allows us to live here anymore. We are elderly and need a 1-2 bedrooms, but our credit is not that good, my credit score have came up about 100 points because of paying my car note on time. but we need a place to live before we move and need to do this before winter sets in. we are on a fixed income when we move there. I work part time now but will not have a job when we move there, I would like to work in a hospital or a school, but until then our income is very limited. if anyone have any suggestion please contatc me by e-mail [EMAIL="dbtravelwithme@yahoo.com"]dbtravelwithme@yahoo.com[/EMAIL] Thank Dinah
