This site is for questions and answers between sellers/buyers and landlords/renters who are using a real estate agent/agency.
If you want a private rental, go to rental websites that list rentals through private owners.
I will say, however, very unlikely that most landlords wont ask for your credit history prior to renting to you. If you are a bad credit risk (too many late payments) , too many bills, or too much outstanding debt, why would they take a chance renting to you? The eviction process is long and expensive for a landlord, all the while they aren't getting any income from their property.
