Question: How difficult will it be for me to find an apartment if I had to declare bankruptcy last year? Answer: The process can potentially be problematic for a renter who has filed a bankruptcy petition; however one of our experienced agents may be able to show properties where the landlord will be understanding. In this connection, the potential renter needs to be prepared with a few items: 1. A reference letter from their current landlord representing they are good tenants; 2. A creditworthy guarantor to co-sign in the event they default with their rent payments; and 3. Additional security or pre-paid rent.
