Apartment and Credit Question
February 9, 2007 10:22am CST
This one is a fairly simple and yet depressing question. There are many (expensive for one trying to move in together with their boyfriend) apartments out there. Jake my boyfriend rents a house with his roommate, and I live with my parents. We are going to move into an apartment together, have enough money saved for first, last, security, and a budget plan for once we are there. What we don't have is squeaky clean credit. Its so hard to clean up credit...wish I had known that when I was younger (and more stupid) than I am now. I have four negative items on my credit, three of which are medical bills from when I was out of work, the last of which was a phone bill from sprint that sprang out of pure stupidity. I am working on paying the latter, but I fear that that will still not be enough. Do most apartment complexes do credit checks nowadays?
