Apartments accepting unemployment as income source?. Will a landlord accept this as an income source? I haven't worked in 3 months, but I am actively looking. I imagine with so many people collecting these days, it has to be acceptable?
It depends how much the rent is, the amount you are receiving for unemployment, the amount you have saved, and the discretion of the landlord. If you have a lot of money save up and you are guaranteed to receive the unemployment than there should not be a problem is you are able to pay the rent. You will have to tell the landlord on your application and he will have to decide whether he sees you as a fit tenant. You will be able to find an apartment somewhere, it's just a matter of where and when and whether you can find the right place or not. You could try to find someone that accepts section 8 housing since they are usually used to low income families living in their units. Just keep looking for a job in this crappy economy.
