Not necessarily need a credit card

Can you rent an apartment without a credit card?
By Heide Braley You can rent an apartment without a credit card or a debit card in most areas of the United States. Most tenants still pay their monthly rent with a paper check mailed to their landlords. Of course, cash is always an option, but that means you have to pay in person.
Do you have to have a good credit score to rent?
The landlord is not required to accept you if you have a passable score. There is also no legal minimum score, so your credit reports and background check from the tenant screening services might just be used as a guideline. Who pays for the check?
Can I rent a house with bad credit?
For those with poor credit, renting a house is difficult. Most landlords require tenants to have a minimum credit score to rent a house. But most people hardly ever check their own scores, nor know how to raise a low one.
Do landlords care if you have no credit history?
Any prospective landlord just wants to be reassured that you can pay the rent, because if you can afford it they might have to pay to evict you and then find a new tenant. That the extent of their risk. If you have little credit history then that shouldn be an issue for most landlords.
