Is it possible to rent a house with past eviction?

My fiancé is being relocated for work and we need a place in two weeks. We are more than willing to pay an extra deposit.

It is possible, but can be harder than normal. It will depend on a few different things and the landlord of the home you choose to try to rent. If you want call me and my team and myself will try to help you out!

It is possible. A land lord may require a double deposit.

That will always depend on individual landlords. Some may accept your application but require an additional deposit, some may not accept an eviction. Your realtor should be able to ask up front so you do not lose money on an application.

It depends on the owner if they are willing to take on the risk factor of an eviction. Since I have my evictions down to pat I can offer the following, 1st and last month's rent + 1 months deposit due on move in by cashiers check only. This only relates to units and homes in my portfolio. If you go somewhere else you can negotiate these terms or even pay 6 months or the full years lease up front. The more you can pay the less the risk for the landlord.

It is definitely possible to obtain a rental property with a previous eviction. You may have to pay an additional deposit due to the risk. I have assisted many clients with a similar situation. I guided them through the rental process and now many of them are Homeowners. Please let me know if I can be of assistance to making you and your husband's relocation to Houston a smooth transition. Thanks for your time.

Once an eviction or broken lease is on your record it does follow you. As mentioned depends on the owner if he/she will accept the eviction. I have had owners to consider the circumstances and allow the tenant to rent. Always tell the truth! Keep the faith and give me a call I will work hard to assist in any way I can.

Yes! Definitely possible but definitely costly. Most assuredly their will be significant deposit required but all those type of decisions are strictly up to the Owner.
Please contact me and let’s discuss your situation further, as I’d be happy to walk y’all through the process.

Yes it is possible. But you may be asked for and additional deposit as well as first and last months rent up front.

Yes not all landlords have the same requirements. It’s a little bit harder but still doable.

Hi Vivian,
It is usually harder to get accepted by single family homes. I would suggest apartments considering the short time you have. Apartments are more flexible to accept tenants with past evictions. Not all but most of them accept. You can contact me I would love to help you with a list of them suiting your criteria/needs: size, location, budget, amenities etc.

Thanks and Regards,

It is posible to rent a house with a past eviction. It is hard to find an owner/landlord to accept an eviction. They may require rent in advance and/or an increase in deposit.

Yes it is possible, however, keep in mind that each landlord has their tenant selection criteria for qualifying tenants. It also depends on the reason for the eviction.
