How To Rent With Bad Credit

Sometimes you might get in a situation where you are in need of renting a place to be staying but the landlord at the place can review your credit history and become reluctant to allow you access into the apartment because your loan repayment history is not convincing enough to assure them that you can be able to pay all the rent they need from you. In most instances these house owners have valid reasons to want to decline your request to rent their house after looking at your bad credit history because they do not want to risk getting themselves into an occasion where they are not able to meet their own goals because you did not pay them in time. Another thing that will also make it hard to rent an apartment is when you have previously filed a petition for bankruptcy because it shows that you have debts and therefore you might not be able to get rent to pay for the apartment as early as is required.

You can make the landlord accept your request to rent their apartment by providing some cover for them that will make them feel more confident in your ability and willingness to pay rent despite your bad financial situation. The method you can use to convince the landlord that his rent will be paid well is first by looking for a family member who has the kind of credit record required to sign the lease contract for the house with you so that there is an agreement binding them such that when you fail to pay rent in time then they can be asked to pay for you, and therefore the landlord is sure that his business is not at risk of loss.

Secodly, you should open up about your financial hardships at the time of negotiating for the apartment instead of waiting for the house owner himself to start looking at your credit history and find out about your bad credit. The good thing about not hiding the fact that you are currently not in a good financial position to the apartment owner makes him look at you as an honest person, and they can, therefore, be interested in renting you the house if your plan to get money in time and pay rent looks credible to them.

The third thing that you can do is to find another person who has a better credit record than you and has not filed for bankruptcy so that you can rent the house together and help each other in rent payment at the end of the month. When you are in such a situation where your credit is bad, but your partner’s credit is good, the landlord will look at that of your partner, and he can be assured that he will be paying rent.
