Potential landlords are going to run your credit. Do you know what your credit score is? Bad credit isn’t the end of the world for a tenant. Most landlords don’t want to see any evictions. Other items are easier to overlook.
Did you know you are entitled to a free credit report from all 3 bureaus once a year. A great tip is to subscribe to one of the 3 credit bureaus every 4 months. This allow you to keep an eye on your score without paying for it.
There is just one government mandated site that allow you to do this. Please visit FTC’s site for the link to the website by clicking here for your free copy of your credit report. Please remember this is free and not one of those “Free Credit Reports” or Free Credit Monitoring”.
