  • Hello, I often deal with applicants who have poor credit. The majority of them who do not have CCJ's or Defaults actually pass the references fine. However, I always advise them to apply with a Guarantor as a back up just in the event of their references failing. If you have a Guarantor this would be the best option for you. It might be best for you to contact a few agents within your local area to discuss your situation and see what options they give you.

  • You might be able to if you rent privately, all letting agents will do a credit check and if it is not in your favour you could be turned down.

  • It will depend on what type of bad credit you have. If you simply have a poor credit rating due to late payment of bills or moveing house a lot then it will probably not affect your application. If you actually have CCJs then you will probably need to have a guarantor (that is usually someone with a regular income which meets the minimum required level).
