If you have a job, once you find a rental you like, you would ask the landlord for the criteria they will require.
If you don't have a job or you do but your parents are helping you financially, you could ask the landlord if your parents could co-sign for you on a lease.
Unlike credit criteria needed for buying a home, criteria for renting a home depends a lot on the landlord. You could also show copies of your bills and show where you make timely payments.
For buying a home the lenders usually require three trades lines. They can use phone bills and utility bills sometimes in addition to credit card trade lines, car notes, etc. that would report to the credit bureau.
The best advice we could give if you don't have credit that reports to the credit bureau, is to open a "secured credit card". Ask your bank if they offer them; if not search on-line. You would apply for the card, then make a "deposit" once you are approved. For example, you would send in $250. They then allow you to charge on your secured credit card for up to that amount. You would then make monthly payments to establish credit history.
NOTE: They do have service fees, but it is worth it to establish credit if you don't qualify out right for a credit card.
Hope this helps! You can contact us anytime for more information as well as a list of rentals available in your price range.
