Hi Alon. Yes, a credit check will be required on any rental property and it is done by the owner/landlord. If you have an extremely current credit report with a FICO number and it's a private owner, they may accept your copy. If it's a managed building, they will run a credit check anyway and charge you for it.

Of course, you don't mention if you have good credit or not. If not, refer to the answer below. Good luck.

Most landlords do check credit reports, therefore if your credit is amiss consider a guarantor...

HI Alondralp!
credit check in very important. If you don,t have a credit then you need a guarantor or insurance. To get into a co-op or condo you need to have a good credit.
