Can I rent a home or apartment after filing for bankruptcy?

If you have filed for bankruptcy, one of your first concerns may be whether or not you will be evicted from your apartment or be unable to rent an apartment in the future. Fortunately, most landlords will renew your lease without an updated credit check. However, if you are applying for a new lease, you may run into some difficulties. Because bankruptcy damages your credit report, it may concern many landlords that you will be unable to pay rent. One suggestion may be to offer extra money upfront to help convince the landlord you are financially stable and won’t miss payments.
