Hi....I'm a renter actually and I had a question. I lost my job recently and am unable to pay rent at my college house. I got a new job but the money isn't coming in fast enough and I was wondering if my landlord (who I have an excellent relationship with) would go for a payment plan where I end up paying him 150% of what I owe over twice the time? Would you as a Landlord? Basically I owe $800 over the next 2 months and I was offering to pay $200/month for 5 months + forfeit my security deposit ($400) so that he walks away with at the very least $1200-$1400 for not evicting me? I would greatly appreciate any constructive comments or advice. Thank you!

You really need to talk to your own LL as everyone is different.  Some rely on the tenants rent to pay the mortgage that month and some are a little better off and can work with you like you want.

It all depends on their situation as no one rents just to be a LL as its not easy, its for the $ and/or help paying off their property.

If I were your landlord I would decline, and start an eviction process.  A landlord's life is full of bills.  A landlord cannot afford to help you with your finances when his business relies on your steady and reliable payment.
