Re: Score needed to Rent?

Hello all. I'm looking to move out and rent a place of my own. Anyone know what kind of score is need to get in without a co-signer? Is there a minimum? Any help would be appreciated. Looking to move ASAP. My EQ and TU Fico scores are mid 600s. 


Thanks all! 



Don't think there's a specific score requirement as I've had my score not retrievable by FICO with recent lates, charge offs, etc... and had no problem renting, but they may require you go give one or two months down payment depending on your overall story, meaning your criminal history, bankruptcy, charge-offs, etc...
