Local Attorneys Highlight Renting After Filing for Bankruptcy

Crestview, Florida – The end of the month officially ends the moratorium on rents and mortgages as unemployment ends, which will leave many to scramble in the months and weeks to come. This can leave many people looking to rent while also needing to file or recently file for bankruptcy. According to local lawyers, Lewis and Jurnovoy, Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies will show up on your credit report for up to ten years. Therefore, it is important to know the different factors that landlords will take into account when they need to rent with a bankruptcy case.

A landlord is usually more interested in how much potential tenants are currently earning or have in reserve for rent rather than whether they have already filed for bankruptcy. Many landlords also take employment history into account when deciding whether or not to rent to individuals. In addition to work history, owners will want to know how long a person has been in a current job, whether it has been employed continuously, and their current hourly rate or salary. The length of employment has a lot of weight in this situation.

Proof of paying rent on time and never breaking a rental agreement or lease with previous landlords could be helpful. Additionally, for people forced to file for bankruptcy due to circumstances beyond the individual’s control, such as the pandemic, an explanation of the situation will help a homeowner make an informed decision.
