Was supposed to sign a lease today but found out my company might be going under -_-

I'm a landlord. If I owned or managed multiple properties that often have vacancies and thought you'd be a really good renter in the future, I might refund in the present with this situation or even consider charging less of a deposit on a future unit. Especially if you say something like "Given the employment concern I need to wait a few months, but I've already put resumes out there and am hopeful. Will you let me know about potential vacancies you anticipate this summer?"

It depends on where you live/ what the rental market is like, but I've definitely gotten money back by hinting or even directly saying I may use the same management company or landlord in the future (obviously when I know I will).
