Low credits should not harm your ability to rent on the East side of Madison. Please be aware that a Land Lord generally does a credit check and contacts references. If you have a history of not staying current with your bills and/or not keeping up to date on your rent, you may have a more difficult time finding a more desired rental. Be prepared before you shop. Understand what you can afford and have money, credit and references ready so you can sign a lease if you find a rental you desire.
