What if I don’t meet the landlord’s financial requirements or have limited employment history?

In cases where the applicant has a limited work history, does not have a U.S. credit history, or does not quite meet the landlord’s financial requirements, the landlord will sometimes ask for additional rent or security up front, a guarantor, or both a guarantor and additional funds up front. The amount required varies, and is negotiated between the applicants and the landlord during the application process.
