It depends on how bad the credit is as your rental history and employment are equally important. In today's market credit issue is quite common so some landlords are willing to take that into consideration as long as you have a solid rental history and employment. I would suggest working with a credit repair company to help with the credit issue. If you don't have one, I can give a name or two for you to call. If you are not currently working with a realtor, I'd be happy to help you.
Best of luck,

Many Landlords/Property Managers look at credit to see the amount of outstanding expenses you have to pay on a monthly basis to make sure you can afford the home you are wanting to rent. We all know that not everyone has good credit because if you did, you would probably be buying a home instead.
Occasionally some extra deposit money is required but usually if the credit problem can be easily explained (divorce, loss of job in the past, death of family, etc) then it can be overlooked.
If you want help locating a home to rent, My team would be happy to help you. We can also negotiate with other Landlords on your behalf and our service is Free to you.
If you want the name of a few good credit repair companies, we can help get you set up with that as well.
Contact me if you have any questions!
That is a subject many renters are asking, especially those hit hard by the economic crisis.
As an agent that works with leases constantly, both on the tenant and the landlord side of the transaction, I do have instances where I have placed tenants with bad credit into a rental home. It takes alot of negotiating and hard work, but it can happen.
Most landlords will accept a larger security deposit, 2-3 months in advance. In order for this to work, you MUST have a solid work history, longer than 3 years on the job, and good rental income.
I would be happy to go over these things with you and see if there is anything I can do to help.
Please feel free to text, call or email.
