Help With Rent
Posted By: Leslie L.
Getting help to pay rent is a service that many local governments can provide. There are going to be some requirements and restrictions but the services do exists in most cities. Beyond local governments there are other options. First, there are federal government help too. You can find this help on their .gov website and it explains all the services that are available and the requirements for each. This is not a service to be overlooked, when looking for help with rent you must exhaust all you options and this one can be fruitful. Second, you can turn to community groups. These groups do not usually help with rent specifically but they can help with food and other family oriented costs. By cutting back on those costs you can have extra money to pay the rent. Use these community based services to help ease normal costs. Third thing you can do is ask friends and family for a hand-me-down. This should really be a last resort because owing your family money is not a flattering look. If you do borrow money from your family, be sure to pay them back because if you just take and never give back, you will not likely be able to borrow again. Last thing to do if you are short on rent is to just talk to the landlord. He/she might understand the situation you are in and allow a late payment. What you DO NOT WANT to do is fall behind on rent. You need to take care of the problem the second it happens. Waiting 3 months will put you so far behind rent that in most cases you will not be able to recoup those debts. I know this is just a short summary of help with rent but I figured I would try and post an article. Please leave comments if you know specific services that I didn't mention.
