Will a Consumer Proposal affect my application to rent an apartment?

October 1st, 2009 by Questions

I plan to apply for consumer proposal and sell my house to move into an apartment.  Will this affect my application to rent an apartment or get another mortgage?

While some landlords may do a credit check, this doesn’t mean that the filing of a consumer proposal will automatically cause problems. All you need to do is that when you are meeting with a prospective landlord and they ask for authorization to pull a credit check, simply explain what they will find and often this disclosure up front goes along way to mitigate any concerns the landlord may have.
