It depends.  It is not mandatory to have a credit check for rental properties, bbut savy landlords usually request one.  Free credit reports can be obtained online and then emailed to the agent or landlord.  It is helpful to be transparent and explain any delinquencies or issues that may arise.
I can help you find a rental property in New Jersey, there are so many to choose from.

The rental criteria for any property is established by the owner / landlord. For any property of interest, you (or your agent) should ask the listing agent to disclose the criteria used for screening applicants.

It is a common practice to include credit, criminal, and rental history in a rental screen, although many screening service providers don't return the actual credit score to a landlord or property manager. The credit history is considered as a part of the equation, and then returned as a component of an overall rating... such as a letter grade or number grade on a scale of 1-100.
