To rent a property with a bad credit, find a leasing company offering services that specializes in your issue.

It kind of depends on why your credit is bad... if you had a medical issue, or forclosure... tell the prospective landlord ahead of filling out an app... let them know why your credit is bad... if you simply pay everything late or have tons of collections and no excuse... good luck get a roomie.. and clean up your act.

Do you have any cash saved? This can be done easier if you are able to pre pay some of your rental payments early.

Get in touch with an agent that specializes in what you are trying to do..or is very experienced.  I just helped somebody with a bankruptcy and they didnt have to put up an extra deposit.

I dont cover your area, but I can most likely put you in good hands, email me or call.

Hi Tatum,

Ask the listing agents or landlords for a copy of their screening criteria. Look for policies on credit history, and see how derogatory credit is handled. In many cases, a double or triple deposit can help indemnify against bad credit.
