The best thing to do is if you have a judgement, meaning that your where evicted oweing your landlord pay him and have him to update your credit report... If there was no judgement, try to research your cities policies on how to right that eviction wrong, just maybe they'll (landlord) will give you the benefit of the doubt. As it turns out other than that it will be on your credit report for 7years. I will tell you from experience, it may take sometime but you can find a landlord that is willing to work with you and explain what was going on and let him know what your doing diferently now. Some landlords will just rather not discuss it and charge a month rent and a couple months security, so you have options just find out what they are sweetie and get in where you fit in, just know that if your doing the right things for the right reasons that life's bumps have a way of working themselves out.

It depends on what you are looking for. There are some apartments in Columbus that will rent to people with an eviction. You see, I too have an eviction; I became ill and could not work and filed for disability. I informed the rental office, but they didn't care that I was ill and waiting for my disability; they even set me out the day before Thanksgiving and laid me on my mattress right on the sidewalk, where I stayed for nine hours until someone helped me call some movers and put my things into storage and took me to the hospital. Now I needed a place to live and no one cared why I had an eviction, just that I had one and turned me away. One landlord demanded double deposit and first month's rent and when I presented him with the check, he decided not to rent to me and kept the check, but I was able to stop payment on it. So I went online and found some apartments that will work with people with evictions: Oakbrook Manor, Abbey Lane Apartments, and even a few in Dublin, like Bent Tree Apartments and Dublin Manor will work with you; you may have to pay a larger deposit, but they will work with you. Oh and Raccoon Creek, Walnut Creek Townhomes, Rocky Creek and Franklin Manor will rent to you as well. Beware: some of these apartments communities are in rough areas or are rough and unkempt themselves. Oakbrook Manor and Rocky Creek are in SW Columbus and Walnut Creek and Abbey Lane are on the North side. Give Abbey Church a call; they will rent to you as well. They rented me an apartment with my eviction and Dublin is not a bad place to live. Hope this helps!

Evictions are hard to get past an owner. If it was in your younger days before you knew better or had some strange things happening in your life at that time, like a job loss. I would suggest you write an explaination letter to send with your application and a co signer is a possiblility. You can offer to pay in advance but I hate to see people give that much money to the landlords because if they stop paying the mortgage on the place then you could be out due to foreclosure and they have your money that you won't get back when you have to move.

research the landlord/owner......don't rent from them if you see any signs of financial problems....The market is overcrowded with foreclossures.......run,,,,do not rent from ownners who are in debt. The clerk of courts and property appraisal sites for your county can provide plenty of info for you....renting is a big rip-off we are paying for someone else's property,,,try to own,,,asap

I think you can provide documentation to the new landlord showing that you have a better financial situation now. For example, you could show that you are making more money now or have a more stable job.
Another good idea is to settle with your old landlord for the judgement you owe. You can show this documentation to the new landlord which would prove you are responsible person and have cleared up past problems.

If you have extra cash and can pay like 6 months rent in advance, I am sure you can convince some landlord to rent to you. Money talks!!!

#1: Pay your bills! Both past and present. #2 Get a guarantor with very good to excellent credit. #3 Pay a full year up front.
Don't know what else to suggest since you have a whole lot of money!??

Depending on how long ago the eviction was and case by case situations there are certain places that will rent to you. Also, you may have better luck with apartments vs. landlords as they are use to this.

Yes money talks! I have had the exact same problem and paid 6months rent up front. They Rental Prop waived the application fee and the credit check. The other option if it's available is a co signer. If you haven't already made arrangements to pay the previous landlord do so and inform the prospective landlord. Good luck!

Anika, if you are able to and it is allowed pose to your prospective landlord that you are willing to pay 6months in advance. Also, indempent landlords may work with you. If that is not an option then maybe you can get someone to co-sign for you. In the mean time if you haven't already make arrangements with previous landlord and get it in writing what you are doing. Good luck!

You should consider getting a guarantor or a co-signer for any new leases you decide to look at.
Hope this helps.

As mentioned above the circumstances of the eviction are important in you finding a home. However in todays real estate market I know there are lots of owners who are willing to take chances with people. Check out autumnhillfinancing.com, they helped a friend of mine buy a home and he has had a rough credit history. They mainly help people buy homes but they may be able to help you out. Hope this helps.

You quit dealing with renting and just buy something. If you make that much money you will need the interest right off at tax time! Plus it forces one to be responsible and reap the consequences.

Because the landlord still has to pay taxes which are usually around $150 - $350 a month on the property whether you pay your rent or not. There's also water which is usually included in rent. You pay water and sewage whether it's used or not. Then there's insurance for them to pay. My husband wants to rent out our house for $600 a month. We figure that's about $300 a month "profit". If the tenant doesn't pay rent for a couple of months and we have to pay for eviction on top of that, plus if they leave the house destroyed, we not only make nothing, we lose money. I'm going to make a guess that since you didn't know the answer to why people are wary of you, you probably don't give too much thought about how your actions affect other people.

It won't be easy. If you were evicted for nonpayment of rent, you could try offering to pay a lot of months up front, or if you can get someone with great credit and income to cosign for you, that might also help. If you trashed the place you were evicted from, nobody will want to rent to you except people too stupid to check your background.

It's important to always pay your bills. It's better to break a lease and move out early (into a cheaper place or free digs at a friend's or family member's place) when you run into problems than it is to stop paying your bills.

Listen... most of these people have no clue. Money covers up most ills. I have been thru a few ups and downs and a huge down payment has always created a brighter day. I have bought cars, houses whatever with trashed credit. Cash rules...

If you want to rent without all the management checking, go to a person who only rents out 1 bldg. Talk to the owner. If they have a management company they will treat you pretty much like a number. I am going through the same things it is ruff. I had a gal make 3 false police reports saying i keep knocking at her door and am being evicted for it. Some things can be explained ...BE REAL !

Your best bet is to explain your situation and hopefully, someone will take pity on you. I do hope that you were not of those irational beings who unilaterally decided not to respect the terms of the lease.
