This is possible and realtordotcom has a good article on ways to achieve this. I would go on that site and search how to rent with bad credit. Two of the best in this article talk about increasing money offered up front to entice the landlord. This can be the offer to pay several months rent up front or a larger security deposit. See the article for other ways that can help.

It depends on the landlord. Did you try using a co-signer.

Yes, some landlords will rent to people without good credit. It is helpful if you can explain why your credit is not good. Also if you have someone that is willing to co sign for you, this may help you in getting the rental.

Yes, it depends if the landlord will accept you as his tenant.

Landlords are typically more lenient with credit as long as you have no evictions, have good rental history and have the income to support the rental agreement. While every situation is unique and there's no one size fits all, typically you will fid that the above is true. As previously mentioned, having a qualified Co signer can often help as well.

Hi Tina. It depends. Some landlords will accept a larger security deposit and stricter guidelines. The only way you will know is to ask. Also, consider asking a family member or close friend to co-sign your contract. It never hurts to ask.
