There are plenty of landlords that are willing to consider less than perfect or bad credit; other compensating factors also help. I have helped many people rent homes when their credit is bad. We can help you rent one of our properties currently listed for lease :) 951-712-7372

If cash flow is not a problem, many traditional property managers/landlords will consider a two-month security deposit equivalent (legal max here in Virginia) to offset the sub-credit situation. If that's overwhelming, perhaps a family member would consider a co-sign on the lease. For the long term, of course, work with a bonafide, credit-repair list - many local lenders will help you know WHAT you need to do to fix poor scores, and it won't cost you anything. They, of course will be grateful for your mortgage business in return, when the time comes! : ) Hope this helps, and good luck! Tim

It all depends on what is on your report. Now a days there are a lot of people who make good income and are responsible people but had just went through a hard times like divorce or a foreclosure/ short sale. I leased my income property to a Bad Credit Tenant and it has been great. 3 years now with not 1 problem.

Also CASH is king. If you have the cash to pay a large deposit or 6 month to 1 year in advance they might look past the bad credit. Not as likely but its a possibility.

I was trying to buy a home but that's nearly impossible when someone steals your identity.

My option is to Rent but everywhere I apply my application get's denied. My husband & have okay credit but were victims of stolen identity. I have an attorney and police reports but even with that information haven't found a place most places don't take co-signers. jmbarillalaw2012@yahoo.com looking for a place in orange, tustin area

If you don't have a family or friend who would be willing to act as your co-signer/guarantor, look for a company who would step forward like EZ Lease Rentals. Their service is excellent. I am one of the people that they helped with leasing property and credit issues.

I suggest you check out companies out there that can help you rent a home even with bad credit. One reliable company would be EZ Lease Rentals. A personal recommendation as I've tried them already. They don't ask for too much requirements, all you have to have is a monthly income of at least $4000, it can be you and your partner's income combined and you should have no criminal record as well, and that's it! They provide their service in a very reasonable fee!

As a landlord that has had many applicants try to rent from me, bad credit means that someone - regardless of the reason - has trouble paying their bills and is ok with using other peoples money without paying them back. The score is tied to risk. In my experience, risk relates to time and money to evict a non paying tenant. So my advice is to get your scores up or find someone that doesn't mind renting to someone that has a track record of not paying.....
