Hi Jennifer,

Having less-than-stellar credit is not ideal, but you can certainly still rent a property. You have to be able to show that you have enough money coming in, usually to cover at least 3-4x the rent.

You may be required to put a larger security deposit down or pay a few months up front, as well. if you can find a co-signer or guaranteer, that would be great too!

Here's a link to our housing search around Adelanto, CA to help get you started:

Hope this helps!

Hi Jennifer!

YES! By law, any proof of income you can provide regardless of the source must be counted towards your combined monthly income. In CA, landlords may not discriminate against any type of income whether it comes from unemployment, child support, or whatever. Our company, Renttoday.us has LOTS of homes for rent in the High Desert and all over So Cal...in fact, we are holding 6 Open Houses TODAY for Victorville and Adelanto with rents ranging $995-$1195.
