  • Hi DawayeBone, Bad credit need not mean that you cannot rent a property. For many landlords and letting agents around the UK, credit checks are not necessary, and they simply do not carry them out so long as you have other evidence that you have been a good tenant in the private rented sector in the past. If you can give them references from landlords you have dealt with in the past this can be a great way to get yourself a property. Other ways you can do it will include making use of such things as guarantor letters, which basically means that someone else agrees to be legally responsible for your rent if you cannot or do not pay. This is often the best way to show landlords that they have no reason to not let to you. In any case, try talking to letting agents and see if they can help you out, as many will be flexible on their terms if you can prove to them that you will be a reliable tenant. Many thanks, Scott
