Exclamation Apartments that rent to bad credit tenants?? Plz help!!

Alright so my lease expires with my current landlord in January, and I will def. not be renewing it for various reasons. My question is: does anyone know of any apartment complex's in Charlotte that rent to people with bad/damaged credit? I have two years of EXCELLENT rental history with my current landlord and steady/sufficient income from employment - I just have bad credit due to a failed investment property that resulted in foreclosure and some other credit issues. Please help!! Thanks!!

Just a guess, but try private landlords rather than the corp owned developments.

Get a letter from your current LL stating what kind of tenant you have been for the past two years and a statement of his understanding why you are moving.That would be the kind of thing I would look to get from you as a LL and if you could not provide that I wouldn't rent to you anyway. (meaning old bad credit issues vs. born again good tenant)

Worse case you can bargain with 2 months security deposit.

Talk and explain - some companies are a dead no, while others, will negotiate if they want a good tenant.

Is there anyone that will take a chance and rent to a tenant that is on unemployment, went back to school to get a job that pays what I was making before lay-off. have not been able to find a good paying job. Have been with current landlord for 6 yrs, but the rent that I am paying is getting to high for me to maintain. What to leave on a good note. Still have a child I have to take care of.

I would try to negotiate with your current landlord to see if you can find some common ground with your rent. It's expensive to find a new tenant, and as a landlord I'd rather not bring in quite as much money from a proven long term renter rather than go through all the risks and time of finding a new, unproven, tenant.

I would try to negotiate something with the current landlord, too. The worst they can do is say no. My friend moved to Florida and couldn't find a job for over a year. After his lease was up, their rent was set to increase a large amount.

He gave his notice and told them he was leaving because he couldn't afford the rent without a job. Because of his situation, they lowered the rent enough to where he could stay at that complex.

I don't know of any apartment that would deny a rental simple because the tenant is on unemployment. After all, income is income. That's my case and it hasn't been an issue at all.

this is good advice. I have renegotiated rent with one of my tenants twice now. He's a good renter, does extra stuff and I'm glad to have him these days.
