In part 1 and part 2 of Workarounds to Renting When You Have Bad Credit we discussed solutions you can use to ease a landlord’s concerns about your bad credit. Here are 2 more fixes to your bad credit when trying to find a place to rent.
- Find a no-credit check rental. Although many landlords will check your credit score, not all places require a credit check. Look for places that don’t use this as a requirement. Yes, it may take a little digging, but at least once you find the place you won’t have to worry about dodging the elephant in the room.
- Improve your credit. There’s no better solution than just improving your credit. The faster you start working on your credit, the faster your score will rise. Once your score is in a good spot, you can easily find a place to rent with no problems.
If you implement these solutions when looking for a place to rent, you will minimize your chances of letting a bad credit score prevent you from renting.
