renting an apartment
I applied to rent an apartment and paid $20 for each applicant fee for background and credit check. My credit is not that great I had great payments on a car That i leased out but horrible on credit cards from 2008 to 2014 most of my bad credit is from 2008 to 2010 that I have not cleared up it is 2016 now I have always paid rent on time everywhere i lived but I am behind on gas and lights a bit from 2014 that my ex did not pay he was also on the gas and lights. Im scared that the gas and lights will hold me back my fiance now is able to put gas and lights in his name will anything hold me back from getting this apartment or not?
