Depends on the management Company or Landlord. I would ask for an extra Security Deposit

A landlord would be happy to receive a full years lease in advance but would would still need to do his/her due diligence in ordering and reviewing your credit report. They might decide to lease to a tenant that doesn't have a full years lease payments but has excellent credit.

That's a great question. And like most realtors, property managers, landlords, etc, the credit report is the one document that tells a story of your position to pay on your obligations in a timely manner. This is why everyone should review their credit report and verify all information to make sure it is accurate. This allows you to take action to correct your report so that it truly reflects your character.

I highly doubt it that any landlord would omit the credit report. Landlords use the credit report to evaluate the reliability of a tenant.

Most places in California use a Rent Check to see if you have ever being behind on your payments or if you were ever evicted!

It's doubtful that any landlord would omit the credit report. I suppose it's possible, but landlords use the credit report to evaluate the reliability of the tenant.

Hi, Saudia, as others have mentioned, many landlords will request a credit check even if you're paying the entire term up front. We have helped some of our clients, mostly foreign nationals who do not have a credit history, obtain leases without a credit check by paying upfront. Hope this helps!

Pretty much every savvy landlord (or their property manager) is going to get a credit check, so they know who they are renting their property to. Best policy is to be honest up front about your financial challenges and offer the incentive of paying up front.

That is up to the discretion of the landlord, there are risks to the landlord though for accepting this type of offer.
