Make sure you and your husband keep your accounts seperate.  Not authorized users on each others, or any other connection.  Keep yours squeaky clean.  Apply for apartment based on yours only.

His credit won't impact you unless you are a co signer on any of the accounts. As long you keep you bills paid and never go 30days past due you should be fine on establishing your credit also you want to watch your debt to income ratio too much debt compared to income can make you seem like a liability

get credit cards, loans, etc to establish yourself if not already have credit. If your tied to him credit wise then its a battle but doable. If you get cards keep less than 30% on them and pay as scheduled, NEVER MISS payments.
