Many people have imperfect credit these days. I may be able to help you depending on how bad the negative trade lines appear on your credit report. As long as you have no unpaid eviction judgements on your record, no PECO, PGW utilities in collections, I can often get applications approved.
You should be prepared to answer the standard question: "Well, you say you are both working, can afford your monthly bills. So then why is your credit so bad? Why haven't you paid these bills that are negatively affecting your credit?" As long as these can be answered with reasonably sensical answers, most Landlords will try to work with you.
Please feel free to call me directly to discuss your situation and give me your e-mail address so I can send you available rental listings that fit your needs.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
All the best,

You are not the only one this is not a huge obstacle to renters anymore landlords want to make money off there property an empty property means no money so most are not pushing the whole credit issue most of them have bad credit also. Find multiple agents to help you find a property the first one to find it gets paid. may GOD bless you
