Credit reports and credit scores are a great way to improve your chances of securing your next apartment rental. Many landlords will require a credit check prior to approving new tenants. A credit report is basically a history of how consistently you make payments to various obligations.
A good tip for when looking to rent your next apartment is to bring your credit report with you, but not to show it to the landlord unless they ask you for it. Volunteering your great credit score can sometimes be seen as a cover for other deficiencies. We recommend that you bring your credit score with you, and make it available should a landlord ask to see it.
