Hi Dianna,

Each landlord or property management company will have their own set of "rules" that they use in regards to someone's credit. It also depends on what you mean by "bad" credit. Everyone has their own idea of what "bad" credit means.

You are most likely going to have the best luck by finding an individual landlord on Craigslist or somewhere similar that you can explain your bad credit to and will work with you.

Another option would be to talk to Stone Creek Property Management in Gold River and ask what their requirements are regarding credit. They may be able to suggest a landlord, or an apartment complex, that would rent to you as they handle a lot of the property management business in Gold River. 916-638-7916.

Last suggestion would be to contact Blue Water Credit if your credit truly is in need of repair. They help individuals raise their credit scores.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!

As to the credit issue, much will depend on the landlord/building, each is different; however you can consider being upfront regarding your credit; be prepared to show proof of employment/pay stubs; possibly pre-pay some of the rent; possibly offer extra security; have some reference letters handy; consider a guarantor, etc. Also consider working with an agent of your own....
