Credit and usually back ground checks are done by most landlords. If one or both are potential problems, you may be better getting away from a large company owned property and dealing with a smaller investor/ landlord.

I answer questions about financing real estate based on my decades of experience dealing with mortgage underwriters. This answer is my personal opinion, has not been reviewed or approved by the company I work for. I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.

Yes, they will do a credit check unless you buy a home cash out.
