DIFFICULT.

However, it got easy for me when I got the services of this company (EZ Lease Rentals). It helped me rent an apartment of my choice even with bad credit. So, I suggest if you have bad credit, consider a reputable company to help you out here.

Very tough, as you will need to take corrective steps to improve your credit.

Ways to improve and raise credit scores:
1. Pay bills on time
2. Never max out on what your credit card limit is
3. Review any errors made by the credit reporting agencies
4. Don't close unused accounts if you have a good credit history
5. Keep credit card balances as low as possible & apply for credit card only if it's needed
6. Negotiate with creditors

It is stressful and nerve-wrecking!

Difficult but challenging. You will need to solve your credit issues first before getting approved on leasing property. I've been there before and EZ Lease Rentals helped me get the apartment that I wanted after guiding me on solving my credit issues.
