If you pay off any old bills, try your best to get the collector to agree in writing that they'll remove the account(s) from your credit report once paid.  Yes, it will help your credit, especially if the accounts are removed.  If you can't get them to agree to that, it's still better to have a paid collection than an unpaid collection.  However, the older the accounts are the less damage they do.  If left unpaid, they fall off your report after 7 years from date they went delinquent.

Leases are really tough, but you may try filing an online complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau at www.consumerfinance.gov and they may be able to get it resolved for you.  No cost to you.  Best of luck!
