    Most landlords will require you to make 3-4x the rent. If you don’t, you won’t qualify for the unit, regardless of how good your credit is.

    If you don’t make enough money to qualify, your landlord may ask you for a co-signer or guarantor that does make enough money.

    You won’t as long as you stick to about a third of your income for rent. Your credit shows your willingness to pay, but you need the ability too.

    Income is what they look at in an apartment contract and your credit report but not as much because if you default all they need to-do if court papers.

    Ask you can put a higher deposit down to speed up the approval process or to make your chances better for getting approved.

    Landlord will want to know you have the means to pay rent, usually they request in addition to running credit, the last two paystubs. May make decision not to offer you the apartment if they feel you wont be able to afford the rent.
