Can you tell me how to put an apartment in someone's name with bad credit?


Answer by  HawaiianGirl (6906)

Is the apartment paid off? If there is still a mortgage on the apartment, it is unlikely it can go to someone with bad credit, unless there's a cosigner.


Answer by  bill14 (308)

The best way to do this is to find a highly qualified co-signer that is willing to put their name (and credit) on the line and assume financial liability in event that the individual with poor credit defaults on the lease. This should give the owner of the apartment piece of mine a promise of financial accountability.

Unfortunately the landlord is going to do a credit check. You would need to put the apartment in your name and hope he pays the rent.

I would recommend That you ask a family member to put the lease into there name. And to put you on as one of the people living there.

I would not see why your credit would matter if you are trying to rent an apartment. A background check would more than likely be the only thing needed.


Answer by  pryoplasm (444)

Depends on where you're living, why your credit is bad, and if you can afford a higher than normal security deposit. Some apartments require a minimum salary, or higher deposit.


Answer by  flamiss22 (5081)

The best way is to search the classified for rental apartment that does not require a credit check. Or if your credit is good be the primary person on lease

Find a friend to recommend you. You may have a bad credit but that doesnt mean that you are a bad tenant. Or find someone who knows the landlord a friend or officemate maybe. There are some apartment owners or landlord that doesnt check your credit, if you're lucky you may find some.
