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.
