Most property management companies will run three reports
1) Credit History
2) Rental History
3) Criminal Background Check
They do this to protect the interest of the home owner.
If you want to bypass this process, I would suggest Craigslist and the classifieds in the Las Vegas Review Journal and the Las Vegas Sun.
Perhaps you can talk directly to the homeowner and work something out.
Also,...There are apartment complexes that offer 2nd Chance Leases to potential tenants with credit issues.
I hope this helps..
Good Luck To You....
