I have a few questions for bees out there that are familiar with renting apartments. My FI & I will be moving to a new city at the end of my internship. I graduate with my masters degree the week after we will move back. We are currently looking at places but all of the complexes require proof of income of 2-3xs monthly rent (and since we are not married, we each need to show proof of this). Right now I’m not working so I won’t have any proof of income to show. My FI is working for his dad right now but the rental agreements say that he needs to prove current employment. My mom is willing to co-sign for me & I have enough in savings to show the ability to pay 6 months rent. My FI on the other hand does not have enough money to show 6 months ability plus his parents are not comfortable co-signing for him.
How do others move to new cities? I feel like it is impossible to show current pay of 3xs the monthly rent when we are just moving to the city. I’m hoping to have a job lined up by May but won’t be starting it until the middle of May due to graduation. My FI is still looking for a job. Any helpful hints?
