Do you have to be on a job for a year to qualify for an apartment?

Update:

I was on leases with other people if that counts. Do some apartments accept people if they haven't been on a job for a year?

    A lot of places will want an employment history like that--but not all of them. Just keep looking. If you have good credit and the money for deposits, you should find something.

    At least 1-year on the job and a good credit rating.

    If you have rent before you can uses landlord references it definitely helps. As for the job you just need proof of income that could be income slips or bank statements with payroll indicators.

    means you have to have an income to pay the rent thats all , after all who wants some-one who cant pay the lease .the owners invest on the property to get a return , not charity ..

    Some landlords have that requirement but not all. Many only ask for 3 mo pay stubs. It is 100% up to each individual landlord what they will require.  You have to ask each one what their requirement is.

    That will depend on the landlord and what they accept or not

    Most landlords require a full year.  Some, but not most, require only six months.  Good luck.

    It helps. But so does a prior rental history.
