  1. Although some landlords would overlook your previous rental records, a lot of landlords, however, would not. 

    Here are some tips that could help you get an apartment if you have a bad rental history.

    • Get a co-signer, i.e., your parents or a friend.
    • Check multiple apartments, i.e., the higher the options, the higher your chances
    • Know and focus on your strong points
    • Prepare at least three months’ security deposits of your rent.
