Broken lease? You mean bailing out whenever you feel like it? You should probably hit up the nicer apartments and inquire about month to month leases. A lot of them will do it. That's more expensive obviously, but how much is your safety worth to you?

Is the broken lease reporting on all 3-credit bureau? If not call the apartment complex you want to live at and see, which credit bureau they pull from. Hope this helps.

Broken leases are a tough one for complexes. You might do better renting a duplex or something from an individual that doesn't do all the checking that major apartment management companies do.

If a complex accepts broken leases then it means they do not have a very high standard on qualifying criteria. I'm sorry to put it so blunt, but if they accept that, what else do they accept? Do they even do criminal background checks? Those properties will not be as safe as ones with more stringent qualifying criteria, (all other things being equal).

You may consider going back to the complex where you broke the lease and see if they will "settle" for a smaller amount. If they have turned your file over to a collection agency, the on-site Manager may not have the ability to negotiate with you anymore. If they can, they may take the "bird in hand" to get a little extra revenue rather than asking for the entire amount and getting nothing. Depending upon what kind of lease you signed, they could have charged you a cost of reletting, the balance of the lease and charged back any specials or incentives you received up front. The balance can get quite staggering. Often times they will settle for less and call it a day.

Just make sure you are speaking directly with the Manager and not an Assistant.

Apartment Ratings :: The leading source of apartment reviews by renters for renters.

I'd take a look at this site. I found the comments and ratings of the apartments I previously lived in to be dead on.

Apartment communities that relax standards in one arena usually are relaxed in all arenas.

If they will accept a lease-breaker - chances are they will accept everyone. There goes the "safe" description. If you want in a nicer place, you will need to go back and rectify the negative mark on your rental history.
