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).
