I'm not in your area but I'll echo what other responses have told you. Recently one of my "credit-challenged" clients got turned down by three prospective landlords, and then what we did was he put together a great letter detailing the reasons for his credit situation and the fourth prospective landlord accepted him. I'm sure it was his letter that did it for him. I hope this helps and good luck!
Hi. Elsa: I agree with Kathy regarding having a good job, working toward correcting credit issues, but the most important in my book is the fact that you have paid prior landlords in a timely fashion. Ultimately, it is up to the individual owner to make the final choice of the tenant that he or she chooses. In my experience, I have found that individual owners are sometimes more flexible than properties listed through management companies if that helps you at all. Much good luck to you, Elsa!

Good credit is always a great "plus" to have. Owners like to feel assured the tenant will pay. If you can show you are working to make your credit better, have a good job, and can show good rental history of payments, then sometimes the owner will accept you as a tenant. It all depends on the owner.
