I have not worked for almost 6 years

Most retirees have an income source of some sort, whether SS or a pension or RMDs or something like that. As an ER, I've had similar issues due to lack of organized income stream, although mine was trying to refinance. If you've been able to sign leases without an income stream, you've been lucky. I think a lot has to do with whether you are working with a small co./individual. Large companies and banks are only interested in filling in the blanks, not trying to accommodate.
