I am assuming you are looking for another rental, not a property to purchase. If, as you say, your credit score has taken a temporary hit, then you might compensate by getting letters from previous landlords attesting to your payment history. Pay stubs from your employer may also help.
If you do want to buy a dwelling, a lower credit score may make getting a mortgage difficult, but not necessarily impossible. There are lenders who can work with more modest credit scores. And some mortgage brokers now have tools to help you figure out the best ways to improve your scores relatively quickly. If you need help finding a mortgage broker with skills in this area, let me know.
