The bankruptcy court is going have to get a signed statement from your landlord that you are current on your rent. So I would tell him that file bankruptcy before you do and assure him that you going to keep paying your rent and that should be easier to do because you will be get rid of your outstanding debts.

Generally bankruptcy is a breach of a lease.. however landlords will not evict you as long as they are getting paid. So if you are current on your lease and you reaffirm the lease as a valid contract its likely nothing will happen.
