In some cases you might need a guarantor or pay rent upfront or in most cases pay extra security. As long as all of your supporting documents check out, it should not be too much of a problem.
When renting an apartment a bad credits score does not weigh as heavy as when purchasing. As long as you have not skipped out on any landlords or you don't have a reputation of not paying your rent you shouldn't have a problem with renting an apartment as long as you have the required income, job history, and deposit needed.
