A short sale will have a negative impact on your credit. It is likely but not certain that your landlord will run your credit, in that event that landlord may not agree to accept you as a tenant. Most states have limits with residential tenancies regarding the maximum amount of security a Landlord may demand but it is possible that you may be able to offer additional advance rental payments to offset the negative effect of your lower credit score. Should you require further assistance you may call, Best regards, Keith A. Singer, Esq. 732-749-3700
