We have bad credit due to a bankruptcy last year. We are at a point me need to move.

We have enough to pay 6 months cash maybe more. Do you think we should any future landlords about our bankruptcy and see if they will give us a chance or offer the 6 months right up front? Even if they don't want it we plan to save it and continue to save money so that we never get in this situation again. Jobloss and medical bills just overwhelmed last year but now we are stable with money and have money to cover their medical and expenses just trying to get our living situation settled.

  • i would apply for the home you want and if they bring it up tell them you have a few months up front ( i wouldn't offer the full 6 months that way you still have some saved if something were to happen again)

  • I think they would be ecstatic to get 6 months, most landlords here are happy to get half the deposit at move in.

    If you are interested we have services that will help with medical bills for the future and also financial wellness services come with it.
