My condolences to your friend. Usually, when renting an apartment, one is not subject to the same scrutiny as would exist for purchasing a home. If your friend has the means to pay first, last and a security deposit, she can probably obtain a place to live...and then start over.Of course it's important to clean up her credit as quickly as possible. You didn't mention your friend's age, but some cities have advocates for the elderly who can help get the ball rolling on finding what's available as far as help goes.I would strongly suggest that she employ all of those services available to the newly widowed, including a support group. Have her check with the local hospice, if there is one. They usually have some sort of support group going for the widowed, and it would be good for your friend just being around other widows with similar problems...believe me there are many of them, all ages.The best of luck to her.
