One of my cousin''s mom has been looking to rent a house but has been unsuccessful because of her credit. i was told that she has two evictions, one from when she was sick and in and out the hospital and the 2nd was when she moved out b4 it was filed (her mom feels it does not count.... alrighty then!). let's not fail to mention that she lives VERY filthy... but let me not get into the details. anyway, my cousin asked me if she should help her mom out by putting the place in her name. i wanted to say so bad h*ll no! but I took the neutral ground approach and told her that whatever happens to the place she will be responsible for it entirely and it will be reflected on her credit for years. i sure hope she DOES NOT help her because she is going to be in quite a predicament if she does.

I wouldnt do it. her past shows that she dont treat things well when its her own credit at risk so she wouldnt be any better on someone elses credit in my opinion. Its not worth the risk

Lol. One thing is for sure is that people have no problem messing up what you got going on, especially family. i know it sounds harsh when i say i would not do either even if it is my mother because anything could happen and she might not be able to pay.

What I realize is that she is thinking more on the emotional and not more on the rational. her mother is a grown woman and needs to handle her business like one.

I wouldn't do it, but I would help find a place on her own. she made the mess she needs to deal with the outcome of it. Came she get subsidised housing?

Shes been evicted twice, there's no way in hell I'd ever let her use my name for anything. Not cell, Energy account and definitely not an apartment.

Her daughter has driven her around some areas since a lot of landlords dont advertise in the paper. but the messed up thing about it is that she has section 8 now and moved into her current residence which already had problems and she added to the. she owes this landlord rent that she says she is not going to pay plus the money he added for damages. housing authority told her she had to pay it in order to keep her voucher. she rather let go of it and move on her own. smdh. i wish i had a voucher and she has one and wont do the right thing. some of our people! i swear!

I would not do it. I have seen too many bad stories like that! It usually never ends well.

Yup! what i have learned is that some people are leeches and opportunists. they have no problem with sucking up whatever resources they can and not caring about whom they affect or destroy in the process. I have heard of stories of landlords having to file bankruptcy because of a tenant destroyed their properties and it would cost too much money to repair. for these reasons, i could never be a landlord.
