There are some landlords that will lease without a credit check, but they are getting hard to find. You may want to attempt to locate some "smaller" landlords, as opposed to large apartment complexes. Some of these property owners that do it on a smaller scale may be more likely to work with you.

Instead of trying to avoid a credit check altogether, it may make more sense to explain your credit issues in advance, and be completely honest about it. Then they can tell you up front if they will be willing to rent to you if what the credit report shows them is the same scenario you explained. If you have a good reason for the issues, and pretty solid proof that you will be a reliable renter (for example, really strong references from your previous landlords and proof that you always paid on time), you will almost certainly be able to find a landlord that will work with you.

Hello Danielle,

Yes, most landlords run credit check's but don't care about the score. They are looking for no prior eviction and stuff like that. You can email me for more info.

Your question, itself, raises a red flag about your desirability as a renter. You best get your credit cleaned up in order to get the roof over your head that you desire.

It seems as though lately it is harder to find landlords willing to rent without a credit check. There are some I am sure but they will be tougher to find. My suggestion to you is to seek the help of a credit repair professional. Find one you trust and then follow the plan they prepare for you.
