LOL funny folks We are non drinkers so....not that I haven't partaken in the past trust me. It's practically in the water around here. However, I do want to point out for those moving to KY. It is a beautiful state. Just remember the Lexington made it to a list of the laziest cities in America. I don't like Louisville to live but that doesnt mean somene else wouldn't. Lexington is pricey. We are surrounded by some of the most beautiful horse farms (keyword: FARM, we do not call them ranches here, it took me a while to get my husband ADJUSTED TO THAT FACT) in the world, the number one thing to do in Lexington is go out to eat and ......drink.....and um go out to eat. Eh, not a bad place but ready to move on.

Actually one thing a Kentuckian could do, they could drive up to Cincinnati for the Labor Day fireworks. I used to live in that area and that was one of the coolest annual events I've ever seen. I love me some fireworks...and I've seen the 4th in DC and it was not as good. Then there's Waverly Hills in Louisville if you're into ghost hunting, that was pretty neat, they do tours and the owners are quite nice. Adventure can be had anyplace if you look hard enough. Except maybe Iowa...where the most exciting thing in 10 years was the new mall. Personally I'm looking forward to getting my first decent steak in 4 years. The Pacific Northwest sucks like that (I don't like seafood!)

Last time I went to Lousiville, I bar crawled on Bardstown road, and then went downtown to 4th st and had a blast. One of the coolest cities I've ever been too.

Don't hate on Iowa!

Just because we don't have anything fun to do, and few people actually WANT to move here.... okay fine, I'll admit I'm excited to get out of here and move to CS.

Most places credit check, and if your score is bad, they usually hike up the deposit a TON.

And for very good reason, speaking as a former landlord. There are an astounding number of deadbeats in our society. I am not suggesting that any of us here are deadbeats, but you don't find out until you've already rented to them, and then you have a long and costly eviction process to go through, plus usually much repair work to the house/apartment which the evictees trash out of pure spite on the way out.

Compile a list of solid references from prior landlords. Include them when you apply for the unit you are interested in, and be upfront with your perspective landlord prior to submitting the application. If they don't want to rent to someone in your predicament, it's better to save the $25 application fee and apply it where you know you'll get in! Good Luck!

I just hate being treated like some kind of a "lowly peasant" when I go to apply for a rental. I mean...I don't look trashy, I speak respectfully and politely, and I haven't paid a single thing late for any reason in like a decade. I don't even have pets! I am a good tenant! But credit card balances that I haven't managed to pay off drag my score down, too. Lingering financial baggage from my 20's...I'm workin' on it, but I won't make my family go without while I do, so it takes time. In the meanwhile though, you go talk to these management people and they act as though anyone not BUYING the house is a lower form of life. I resent the term "landlord" honestly. I call mine "the owners." And we are friends, we went boating with them on their lake on the 4th of July! This isn't feudal France for crying out loud, these PMs can quit being so snotty already. They're only middlemen anyhow. And seriously, they are not the only ones who need to judge who they're going into business with. Many parties in the owner/landlord position are unscrupulous and bad to their tenants, too.

How's this: saw an application which asked for 3 credit card numbers, then had the applicant sign a paragraph stating that those accounts can be used for collection of unpaid rents and/or fees, and also stated that management reserves the right to "share information collected" with not only collections agencies but also "other interested parties"...what??? I don't think so. I really like that house, but I'm not signing that. I don't care what they mean to do with my info. I'm not giving them my permission to carry on shenanigans with it, then just hope they don't!

It's not like you are along in the process. j Tons of people have credit problems right now and it will only continue to get worse. They still want your money and rather than refuse it because of your bad credit, they will try to get more of it.
