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.
