When you want to rent an apartment in Las Vegas you
will find that about 90% of the places that you will place an application into
will ask for a fee of between $25 to $50 that would be applied to you rent if
you are approved. Most of this fee is spent on doing a credit check to determine
if you are 'financially responsible'.
How this is determined varies considerably from place to place. Some places will
accept anyone with bad credit providing that they pay a larger deposit. Very few
places will not accept you at all if you have bad credit. What you don't want to
do if you are turned down by one place is go to another place that may be
managed by the same company. Then are wasting your money and your time. If you
are turned down find out who the management company is so that you can avoid

One of the best alternatives to renting an apartment if you have bad credit is renting
a house or a condo. The owners of houses and condos rarely do credit
backgrounds. They do however usually require first and last months rent before
you move in. This is an interesting situation because if the owner of the house
raises the rent on you while you are living there, technically the last month of
your stay will be at the original rental rate. Something to consider ...
especially when rents seem to go up every time your lease ends.
The thing you want to do whether you have good credit or bad credit is to get
everything in writing and keep a copy of that information. It may come in handy.
