I suggest that you ask a relative or friend who has good credit to determine if they may be willing to sign as a "Guarantor" on the lease. This means that if you do not pay the monthly rent then your Guarantor would be responsible for the payment.
In the meantime; do attempt to clean up your credit and call any creditors where you have any disputed charges to have those removed.
