It really depends on what the landlord thinks. 540 for credit score is still ok. You might have to put a larger deposit down that's all. Now a days, just try your luck...You never know.

What is the minimum credit score apartment owners look at before they will accept tenants?

Normally speaking, apartment complexes and owners are not looking at a credit score as a basis for their decision to rent you an apartment. Of course this might be a factor with luxury apartments. But what landlords are looking for our history of evictions and nonpayment of utility bills. If the issue with your credit is simply with credit cards, medical bills, or even furniture bills, this usually does not affect the decision of the landlord. This is especially true with landlords who rent apartments to low income tenants. Also if your credit issue is more than two years old this is often overlooked by the landlord. Most apartment complexes will do credit checks -- that's a fact of life. But if everyone with bad credit was denied an apartment this could be considered discrimination. Other factors involved include criminal records: apartment owners do not want recently convicted felons are convicted sex offenders in their units.

How do you have a good credit score?

The easiest way is to borrow money in a variety of different ways (e.g. credit cards, car loan, store revolving credit, student loan, mortgage) and always pay on schedule on all these loans. Do not keep the balance on credit cards too close to their credit limits. Also if you rent an apartment always pay your rent on time.However remember that every time you open a new credit card or loan account your credit score will drop for several months, so avoid doing too much credit activity at one time.
