She wants to find a place in the L.A. area that's affordable, preferably $700-800. or so, a one bedroom that will rent to her with two small boys would be great. She's hoping that if there are credit problems (assuming they do a credit check on her) she can find someone who will give her a chance. They've always paid rent on time and have good rental references.
Does anyone have connections in L.A.? Know any landlords? Once I get my job I would also guarantee rent in a pinch, but I am sure she won't have any problems paying it.
It would be great if she could arrange to share a house with another single parent too. She's open to that. They could trade childcare even.
