If a couple is trying to rent an apartment and one has bad credit but the other has good credit do we need a co-signer?

The need for the co-signer will depend on the management. However, it would be best, given the bad credit history of the one person, to make sure that the one with good credit can solely support the rent payment. That is because bad credit history reflects a poor payment history.
