No, property repairs and improvements are the responsibility of the landlord. The landlord can however raise the person's rent to offset expenses, assuming there is not a valid rental agreement disallowing the action.

Does a renter of a house have to pay property taxes on it?

The answer technically is "NO" because the owner of the house pays the taxes. However, if it is stated in the lease that the renter signs, and the owner charges the property taxes, the answer would be yes. But, technically the owner legally pays property taxes on their home. If a renter signs a lease with this worded as such, the owner is scamming you and your rent will be higher than it should be. Do not sign it!

Are their companies that will sign a lease for a renter that has bad credit pay the monthly rent for them and then let the renter pay them?

Better yet, you should try to rent privately or get a credit-worthy roommate and absolutely pay on time to build up your rating. Often, though, the rental management companies are selective about what they consider bad, so you may be able to rent a place that is less than 1/3 or your income.
