‘private owners + apt + bad credit + no credit checks + az’
The reality of having bad credit or a broken lease, or even a criminal record becomes all too real when searching for an apartment in Phoenix AZ. This is because with recent changes to tenant-landlord leasing laws, many area apartments in the Phoenix-Scottsdale AZ area have resorted to checking applicants’ credit before issuing an approval. Applicants with criminal records are in even more dire straits with background checks being a made routine at numerous offices.
One of the first things an applicant with terrible credit, or a broken lease or a criminal record can do is to look for an apartment that does not conduct credit checks. This may not be easy but it’s possible. In many cases, our recommendation is that you steer clear of apartments that are owned by large corporations since these are most likely to check credit. The best bet would be on apartments that are for lease by owner. These are usually individually owned apartments, condos, town homes or rental homes in the Phoenix area.
Privately-owned apartments in Phoenix do exist. The first place to search would off course be the Internet. A quick search of “privately owned apartments in Phoenix AZ” or “apartments for lease by owner in Phoenix” or “Individually-owned apartments for lease by owner in Phoenix” may yield some helpful results. While some private landlords can conduct credit checks on applicants, there is a higher likelihood that many also won’t and this can be a great way to rent an apartment without undergoing a credit check.
If this fails, maybe because you cannot find these types of units or the competition is too stiff, then simply try to rent regular apartments but approach the leasing office manager and explain your situation. If your credit is bad and you have something that shows that you are working on it, then produce it. If you are disputing any items in your credit report you can also make this fact known. This is an excellent way of ensuring that a credit check will not block you from getting the apartment you want.
As for no background check apartments in the Phoenix area, the same rule applies. Some apartments will not deny you if the crime was committed over 5 years ago and there are no pending or outstanding cases. This may not apply for some felony crimes such as domestic violence or sexual assault. If you have a felony that is older than 5 years you can review your state laws to see whether you qualify for an expungement. You can contact the District Attorney’s office to check.
