Get a list of apartments
Eviction apartments that will approve you:
There is a good selection of apartments that accept an eviction. While you may have been denied recently, we are able to provide you a list of apartments that meet your criteria and will approve you.
Important: What would make it more difficult is if you have more than one eviction or it’s paired with another issue like: broken lease, bankruptcy, foreclosure, or background issues. If so, those are more pressing matters and you should direct your attention to the multiple issues page.
How much will my deposit be?
A deposit for an applicant that comes back with an eviction will most likely be close to one months rent. However, not every property is the same, and they can charge you more or less depending on the circumstances.
What if my eviction is recent?
The general rule is, the older the eviction the better. We do not know of any properties that will work with someone being currently evicted. Most second chance properties that will work with an eviction require it to be at least a year or two old. There are some properties that will accept an eviction that is about 6 months old, but there are few to choose from and they are mainly located in the major cities: Dallas, Arlington, and Fort Worth.
I don’t know if it is a broken lease or an eviction?
If you leave a lease or do not submit a notice to vacate, then typically you have a broken lease. If there was a court summons then it was an eviction. There are properties that will work with an eviction, but they vary on the amount owed, and how recent, so you would need to find out the amount by checking your credit.
What if I have an eviction on my rental history and I wasn’t evicted?
This is quite common, if you are late paying your rent there is a practice among many properties to file an eviction. If you pay the balance before court then they will let you stay. The problem comes later because your rental history shows the eviction.
- Once you pay the balance, request that the eviction be removed from your rental history.
- Keep all documentation that it was dismissed, and request a letter from the manager stating you were not evicted.
