    I'm an apartment locator in San Antonio.In the rental market here rental history is much more of a concern than credit. If you have no rental history credit can be more of an issue. If you have someone available to co-sign for you it will help.I've also learned you can have bad rental history and terrible credit if you have a lot on money to put down.Your best bet is to go through a locator.You can find one in the phone book under apartment locaors. In almost every city locator are paid by the apartment complex and our service is free to you.We specialize in finding apartments for people who have rental history and/or credit problems.Just tell the locator what your exact credit problems and rental history are and they will know which complexes in town will work with your particular situation.

    It depends on where you rent from.

    Some places require solid credit, some places will take you with okay credit, and some places don't even check it all.

    As a general rule of thumb - make sure your credit is solid because it'll just be one less disadvantage when you're ready to rent.

    Depending where and who you are renting from.

    You don't need to have an excellent or good credit to rent, otherwise a lot of people would be in the street.

    You do need to show that you have enough income though.

    credit checks are for when you a purchasing things on credit. w/ an apt, you pay first and lasts rent so there's no need for a credit check. for a condo, they would run a credit check. not for an apt.

    depends... on the landlord, the area, your current income...

    Some places will still rent to you with an extra month paid ahead, can you manage that?
