Rental Readiness

Rental Readiness One-on-One Counseling  & Group Education at LUL assists clients in obtaining safe, decent affordable rental housing opportunities. LUL’s counselors provide rental counseling and budgeting assistance to consumers who want to achieve their goal of residential independence.  Rental counseling clients are required to attend the FIT class/ orientation. Individual counseling sessions are available through the program primarily to help clients with the following:

  • Preparing a Budget
  • Pull and review tri-merge credit report
  • Establish repayment plans for past due collection or judgment
  • Actions to move household towards financial stability
  • Referrals to apartments or homes to rent
  • Referrals to Legal Aid Society for eviction court clients
  • Referrals to the Center for Workforce Development for employment
  • Referrals to alternative housing options when eviction is imminent
  • Referrals to obtain public benefits, if eligible

During counseling, the counselor will perform an analysis of the consumer’s current financial situation, identify barriers and potential obstacles to a successful rental experience and create a plan to overcome them. Rental assistance programs and subsidies will be discussed, as well as lease and rental agreements.

Rental Readiness focuses on preparing prospective renters on how to be good tenants. In addition to receiving budgeting and credit counseling assistance, the program helps prepare you to handle the difficulties that may arise from renting an apartment or house.
